Algebra I-A and I-B provide an expanded, two-year course sequence designed for students who are not prepared for the academic challenges of the traditional one-year Algebra I curriculum.
Algebra I-B course topics include a review of introductory algebra; measurement; graphing data; linear equations; systems of linear equations; polynomials; factoring of polynomials; factoring of quadratic functions; rational expressions; and radical expressions.
Algebra I-B features ample opportunity for students to hone their computational skills by working through practice problem sets before moving on to formal assessment.
To assist students for whom language presents a barrier to learning or who are not reading at grade level, Algebra I-B includes audio resources in both Spanish and English.
Two versions of the Algebra I-B course are offered: one is built to Florida's Next Generation Sunshine State Standards and Benchmarks, and the other with California's Algebra I Mathematics Content Standards. Detailed correlations to standards for other states are available upon request.
