Algebra 1A and 1B address the need for an expanded, two-year treatment of traditional high school Algebra I curriculum. Focusing on review of pre-algebra skills and introductory algebra content, Algebra 1A allows students to deepen their understanding of real numbers in their various forms and then extend their knowledge to linear equations in one and two variables. Course topics include integers; the language of algebra; fractions and decimals; exponents; solving equations with four basic operations; solving equations with roots, powers, or multiple steps; functions; and linear equations.
Algebra 1A features ample opportunity for students to hone their computational skills by working through practice problem sets before moving on to formal assessment.
When used together, Algebra 1A and Algebra 1B meet California's Algebra I Mathematics Content Standards.
