ALGEBRA

Course Description:

This course stresses precision of language and emphasizes algebraic laws and structure. A strong arithmetic background is required.The course content consists of number concepts, linear expressions, functions and equations, polynomial expressions, quadratic equations, graphing, and probability, statistics, and data analysis. Technology support will be included in instruction.

Unit Structure:

The Unit Structures are the framework of the algebra curriculum which are aligned to the Common Core Standards. The Standards specifically state what the student knowledge and skill level should be for each unit. The common formative and summative assessments were created from this curricular framework. The Unit Structures will also guide teachers in their development of lesson design.
