One Credit Course. No Prerequisite. Algebra I is a one-credit course that is designed to teach the topics in a typical first-year algebra course. Topics include solving linear and quadratic equations and inequalities, as well as equations involving rational and radical expressions. Function notation is introduced and various classifications of functions are explored. Topics from coordinate geometry include graphing linear and quadratic functions; graphing inequalities; and applications of the Pythagorean Theorem, the distance formula, and special right triangles. Students will learn how to solve systems of linear equations and inequalities, as well as 3-variable and nonlinear systems. Exponential functions are also explored.
