1. To develop the Standards for Mathematical Practice.

2. To extend the properties of exponents to rational exponents and use properties of rational and irrational numbers.

3. To reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems.

4. To interpret the structure of expressions and write expressions in equivalent forms to solve problems.

5. To perform arithmetic operations on polynomials.

6. To create equations that describe numbers or relationships.

7. To understand solving equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning; solve equations and

inequalities in one variable; solve systems of equations; and represent and solve equations and inequalities

graphically.

8. To understand the concept of a function and use function notation; interpret functions that arise in applications in

terms of the context; and analyze functions using different representations.

9. To build a function that models a relationship between two quantities; and build new functions from existing

functions.

10. To construct and compare linear, quadratic, and exponential models and solve problems; and interpret expressions

for functions in terms of the situation they model.

11. To summarize, represent, and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable; summarize, represent,

and interpret data on two categorical and quantitative variables; and interpret linear models.

12. To investigate patterns of association in bivariate data.

13. To understand congruence and similarity using physical models, transparencies, or geometry software.

This one-year course provides students with the necessary knowledge and skills for further studies in mathematics. It is intended to increase mathematical fluency in problem solving, reasoning, modeling, and effective communication in the study of number, algebra, functions, and statistics. Instructional practices incorporate integration of diversity awareness including appreciation of all cultures and their important contributions to society. The use of technology, including calculators and computer software, is an integral part of this course. This course fulfills the Algebra I requirement and one of the mathematics credits required for high school graduation.
