Algebra I (Hybrid 1)
The Algebra I course begins with connections back to the students’ earlier work, efficiently reviewing algebraic concepts that students have already studied while at the same time moving students forward into the new ideas described in the high school standards. Students contrast linear and exponential functions as they explore mathematical models using the familiar tools of tables, graphs, and symbols. Finally, they apply these same tools to a study of quadratic functions. Throughout, the connection between functions and equations is made explicit to give students more ways to model and make sense of problems. Algebra I students will master content, engage in applications-based problem solving, and develop the behaviors defined by the Standards of Mathematical Practice.
