### Algebra I A

This course emphasizes the fundamental algebra concepts and skills assessed by the mandatory state assessment test. After a brief review of 7th and 8th grade pre-algebra concepts, students will begin an extensive study of two-dimensional graphing along with solving linear equations and inequalities in both one and two variables. The use of graphing calculators will be integrated where appropriate, and there will be a strong emphasis on applied problem solving. Other topics will include graphing and solving systems of equations and quadratic equations; operations with polynomials, factoring, rational expressions, exponents and radical expressions.

### Algebra II A

Algebra 2 is designed to prepare students to use advanced algebraic concepts and skills in mathematics and in other related disciplines.  This course will build upon the concepts taught in Algebra 1 and Geometry and provides further development of the foundation for functions which are linear or quadratic. Continual mathematical emphasis will be placed on problem solving, language and communication, real-world connections, models, and applications.  Technology will be used to introduce and expand upon algebraic concepts.

### Algebra II B

Algebra 2 is designed to prepare students to use advanced algebraic concepts and skills in mathematics and in other related disciplines.  This course continues to build upon the concepts taught  Algebra II-A and provides further development of the foundation for functions which are  radical, rational, exponential, and logarithmic.  Continual mathematical emphasis will be placed on problem solving, language and communication, real-world connections, models, and applications.  Technology will be used to introduce and expand upon algebraic concepts.
