Algebra IA is the first semester of Algebra I, a course required for graduation and aligned to DoDEA's content standards and the College and Career-Ready Standards for Mathematical Practice. Throughout the course, students will recognize and use properties and laws for operations with real numbers and algebraic expressions, perform basic operations and apply basic factoring techniques on polynomials, recognize linear patters and work with a variety of representations for linear relations to solve problems, graph quadratic functions and solve problems involving quadratic relationships, and display data in a variety of forms and approximate linear models for appropriate data. Through the content, students will build mathematical habits of mind through reasoning, problem-solving, and mathematical modeling. Algebra IB must also be completed for the full Algebra I credit.
Course Note: This course meets the Algebra I (.5 of 1 credit) graduation requirement.
