Course Description

Algebra 1 sets the foundation of algebra, focusing on working with linear and quadratic equations while building appropriate problem-solving skills. This course is suitable for students who have completed a Pre-Algebra course or equivalent, and after successful completion of Algebra 1, students are prepared to move onto Geometry.

Algebra 1B is meant to be taken directly after Algebra 1A. It covers four broad topics: manipulating polynomials, solving quadratic equations, graphing quadratic equations, and functions. The practice problems provided in this course range from fundamentals practice to complex word problems.

I love teaching Algebra 1 because it's so fundamental to complex math down the road.

Given all of its real world applications, I enjoy connecting class concepts to real life examples that are relevant to the student. Having a good experience in Algebra helps students feel more confident when moving onto Linear Algebra and Calculus while also helping students better understand complimentary topics such as Geometry.
