The primary focus for students in Algebra I is developing logical reasoning by making andjustifying generalizations based on their experiences with fundamental algebraic concepts, especially functional relationships and problem solving in real situations. Linear and quadratic functional relationships are examined in a variety of problem situation, and these functions form the basis for the study of equations and the development of algebraic skills. Students use a variety of respresentations (concrete, numerical, algorithmic, graphical) and tools as well as having regular access to technology that allows function plotting, coordinate graphing, algebraic analysis, and computation.

The primary focus for students in this course is developing logical reasoning by making and justifying generalizations based on their experiences with fundamental as well as advanced algebraic concepts, especially functional relationships and problem solving in real situations. Building on the study of linear and quadratic functions from first-year algebra and the study of size, shape, location, and direction relationships from geometry, functional relationships are extended to include radical, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions. These functions are examined in a variety of problem situations and form the basis for the study of equations and the development of algebraic skills. Students use a variety of representations (concrete, numerical, algorithmic, graphical) and tools as well as having regular access to technology that allows function plotting, coordinate graphing, algebraic analysis, and computation.

This course addresses the components of the basic structure of geometry such as dimensionality, congruence, and similarity through the study of size, shape, location, and direction relationships. Connections to algebra and to the world outside of school are generated through a variety of applications and settings. Students use a variety of representations (concrete, numerical, algorithmic, graphical) as well as having regular access to technology that allows geometric constructions, coordinate graphing, algebraic analysis, and computation.
