Algebra I is the beginning of math in the dialectic years. It provides an important foundation for all mathematics that follow. Topics include factoring; rational expressions; systems of equations; lines; solving linear, fractional and quadratic equations; solving inequalities; rational and irrational numbers; and exponents, including negative exponents. The foundation built here will prove helpful for further math studies, not to mention many of life's mathematical problems. Homework will average 3 - 5 hours per week.
Minimum age of 12 on first day of class. Successful completion of VSA Mathematics 6 - Saxon Pre-Algebra or comparable course in the previous 24 months is strongly encouraged.
