• Course Description

     
    Algebra Applications is the companion course to Algebra I - Part 1.  In this course, the students apply operations to practical situations, generalizing to obtain an understanding of variables, expressions, and equations.  Students build reasoning skills as they review and write about mathematical problems.  Students use multiple representations of mathematical situations and solve problems. Though the focus of the course is on understanding algebra concepts and building foundational ideas of algebra, students will also develop skills in problem solving, critical thinking, and writing about mathematics.
