• ALGEBRA 1 --- Textbook: Prentice Hall Algebra 1, 2012
Course Description: This course is designed to continue the skills and understanding of algebraic concepts including operations with real numbers, polynomials, functions, factoring as well as statistics.  Students will solve first-degree equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, and systems of equations.  Concepts are tools for representing and solving variety of practical problems. Tables and graphs will be used to interpret algebraic expressions, equations, and inequalities and to analyze behaviors of functions.

Graphing calculators, computers, and other technology tools will be used to assist in teaching and learning. Students who complete this course will take the Algebra SOL test before the end of the semester
