NC Standards for Algebra I


Algebra 1 continues the study of algebraic concepts. It includes operations with polynomials and matrices, creation and application of linear functions and relations, algebraic representations of geometric relationships, and an introduction to nonlinear functions. Students will be expected to describe and translate among graphic, algebraic, numeric, tabular, and verbal representations of relations and use those representations to solve problems. Appropriate technology, from manipulatives to calculators and application software, should be used regularly for instruction and assessment. Prerequisites
  • Operate with the real numbers to solve problems.
  • Find, identify, and interpret the slope and intercepts of a linear relation.
  • Visually determine a line of best fit for a given scatterplot; explain the meaning of the line; and make predictions using the line.
  • Collect, organize, analyze, and display data to solve problems.
  • Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems.

Algebra I


Class Description:

Algebra I is designed to assist students in their preparation for higher mathematics and science. It includes the study of the real number system and its properties. Students are taught how to solve equations of the linear, quadratic, and radical type as well as systems of linear equations. Graphs of the linear and quadratic functions on a coordinate plane are introduced. A graphics calculator is required for this class. (Students may purchase their own or they may use a school owned calculator during the class period. If a student uses the school calculator during class, he or she will still need a scientific calculator for use at home with homework.)
