• Course Description

    Algebra I, Part 1 supports and promotes student success in mathematics coursework necessary to fulfill graduation requirements.  While strengthening prerequisite skills in the areas of operations with whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percentages, integers, and rational numbers, algebraic concepts are solidified through modeling and the use of manipulatives, graphing calculators, and computer software where appropriate. A concentration on improving problem solving and communication in mathematics builds student confidence. Students may earn one mathematics credit for the Modified Standard Diploma by successfully completing Algebra I, Part 1.
