ALGEBRA ONE HONORS COURSE CURRICULUM OUTLINE
Algebra IA & IB Honors – 1.0 Credit
Students are introduced to the foundational skills needed for more advanced mathematics courses and develop the skills needed to solve mathematical problems. Students perform operations involving numbers, sets, and variables; know the basic properties of real numbers; solve and use first degree equations and inequalities; understand functions, relations, and graphs; solve and use systems of equations and inequalities; solve problem involving integral exponents; solve problems involving polynomials and rational algebraic expressions; factor polynomials; simplify rational and irrational expressions; solve and use quadratic equations. Students extend on these concepts by completing more extensive and challenging assignments. Students complete an independent honors project.
Prerequisite: Completion of a Grade 8 Math course with a ‘B’ or higher.
