The main goal of Algebra 1 is to develop fluency in working with linear equations and extend their knowledge of irrational numbers, experience with tables, and graphs as well as help them make meaningful connections to real life’s experiences. Additionally, an algebra 1 course should promote inquiry and a focus on big ideas.
Each one of your algebra 1 lessons should objectives for your child to achieve. These can look something like this:
- Determine the domain and range of a functional relationship.
- Identify the slope and y-intercept of a linear function.
- Create absolute value equations to model and solve problems.
- Solve a system of linear equations using substitution.
- Evaluate a quadratic function using tables, graphs, and equations.
- Make reasonable estimates using rational and irrational numbers.
- Accurately simplify numerical expressions containing square roots.
- Successfully find common monomial factors of polynomials.
