Course title: Algebra 1a

Course number: 7912080

Teacher:

Objective:

The purpose of this course is to develop the algebraic concepts and processes that can be used to analyze and solve a variety of routine and non-routine real-world and mathematical problems

Description:

This course is designed to teach the students to using numbers to understand the relationship between relative quantities or characteristics. The students will be able to accurately problem solve and predict future outcomes of quantifiable events as. This course will teach algebric concepts through life’s typical activities that require competency using numbers, operations, and algebraic thinking (e.g., counting, measuring, comparison shopping), geometric principles (e.g., shapes, area, volume), and data analysis (e.g., organizing information to suggest conclusions). The student’s will apply numeric principles using concrete materials in real-life activities.
