    Course Objective

    Algebra 1 Common Core is the first mathematics course in the high school.  The integrated algebra course set forth here is not the algebra of 30 years ago or even the previous Integrated Algebra course.  The Common Core Algebra provides tools and ways of thinking that are necessary for solving problems in a wide variety of disciplines, such as science, business, social sciences, fine arts, and technology.  This course will assist students in developing skills and processes to be applied using a variety of techniques to successfully solve problems in a variety of settings.

    Algebra 1 is associated with high school content standards within four conceptual categories:  Number & Quantity, Algebra, Functions, and  Statistics & Probability. See the chart below to see the break down of each conceptual category
