3670 ALGEBRA 1 P
7th - 12th
10.0 credits
Course sunsets June 2016 for comprehensive sites, then it will only be for credit recovery through May 2018.
UC - "C" Approved

The axiomatic structure of the real number system is emphasized, with a focus on the universal vocabulary of mathematics. The following topics are addressed: properties of real numbers, graphing and solving linear equations, linear inequalities and functions, systems of linear equations and inequalities, exponents and exponential functions, quadratic equations and functions, polynomials and factoring, rational expressions, and equations and radicals. Linear equations are derived using the point-slope formula and a system of two linear equations or inequalities is solved algebraically and interpreted graphically. The difference between inductive and deductive reasoning is identified and examples are provided for each of these logic arguments.



3690 GEOMETRY P
