Algebra I - Course Description
Friday, July 19, 2013
At the start of this year we review pre-algebra as the foundation for the basic algebra operations that we focus on during this course. We review and develop greater facility in working with fractions, signed numbers, and multiplying polynomials by monomials. Our primary focus is on transforming algebraic equations using addition, subtraction, and multiplicative inverses (reciprocals). We practice, in particular, the solving of large equations that contain fractional coefficients. From there we move to exponents and polynomials, factoring, word problems, square roots and the quadratic formula.
