Learn how to master the skills of Algebra I and polish your logic, critical thinking, and mathematical reasoning — and start high school math with confidence.
Algebra 1 is a key course which sets the foundation for all future mathematics. In this course, you will learn to think more abstractly and analytically. You will write, solve, and graph linear and quadratic equations. You will learn to solve quadratic equations through factoring, completing the square, graphing, or applying the quadratic formula. This course will also study monomial and polynomial expressions, inequalities, exponents, functions, rational expressions, ratios, and proportions. Algebraic skills will be applied in a wide variety of problem-solving situations.

Homework: There will be 2-4 lessons per week with 10-20 homework problems per lesson, 1 short quiz per week, and approximately one chapter test every other week. Expect about an hour each week outside of the classroom. Each lesson’s homework assignment should take about 20 minutes. Homework assignments should not all be done at the same time but instead should be spread out over several days.
