Algebra 1A and Algebra 1B #3102

Grades 9 - 12 Credit: 2

1 elective credit for Algebra 1A, math credit for Algebra 1B.

Prerequisite: Algebra 1A is a prerequisite for Algebra 1B unless test scores indicate exception.

Algebra 1A will be offered in the fall semester, and will count as 1 elective credit. This is the study of algebraic expressions, equations and inequalities involving integers, rational expressions, graphing, linear equations, rational and irrational numbers. Algebra 1B will be offered in the spring semester and is normally taught by the same teacher students had for Algebra 1A. Algebra 1B is a continuation of Algebra 1A and will include factoring of polynomials, radical expressions, quadratics, and an introduction to trigonometry. All students must pass a standardized test administered at the end of the course in order to receive a high school diploma.
