**ALGEBRA I PART 1-TECHNOLOGY ENHANCED**

Full Year

Grades 9, 10, 11, 12

This course prepares the student to take Algebra I Part 2 - Technology Enhanced. Together, Algebra I Part 1 "TE" and Algebra I Part 2 "TE" teach the Algebra I-Technology Enhanced curriculum. Because the material is split into two courses, it allows the student to learn Algebra I, but at a slower pace. This course requires students to learn and present algebraic concepts orally, in writing, on a calculator, and on a computer. Students will work individually, in groups, and on computers. Computers will be used in addition to the text and class work as a tutor for the students to learn at their own individual levels of achievement. A TI-83+ or TI-84+ graphing calculator is strongly recommended.

**ALGEBRA I PART 2 - TECHNOLOGY ENHANCED**

Full Year

Grades 9, 10, 11, 12

Upon completion of Algebra I Part 1-TE and Algebra I Part 2-TE, the student will be able to graph and solve linear and quadratic equations, functions, inequalities, and systems of equations; simplify and factor polynomials; set up and solve a variety of equations and word problems that apply math concepts to real-world situations; and calculate regression equations, probability and basic statistics, and conduct basic data analysis. These concepts are essential for the SAT and PSSA tests. This course requires students to learn and present algebraic concepts orally, in writing, on a calculator and on a computer.

**ALGEBRA I PART 2 - TRADITIONAL**

Full Year

Grades 9, 10, 11, 12

This course follows Algebra I Part 1-Traditional. Upon completion of Algebra I Part 1 and Part 2-Traditional, the student will be able to graph and solve linear and basic quadratic equations, simplify and factor polynomials, including polynomial fractions, as well as set up and solve a variety of verbal problems. Also, students will have a working understanding of functions, inequalities, and systems of linear equations. They will be introduced to probability, statistics and data analysis, which will be essential to the SAT and PSSA exams. A TI-83+ or TI-84+ graphing calculator is strongly recommended.

**ALGEBRA I - TECHNOLOGY ENHANCED**

Full Year

Grades 9, 10, 11, 12

Algebra I-Technology Enhanced prepares the student to take Intermediate Geometry-TE or Traditional and requires oral, written, calculator and computer expression of algebraic concepts. Upon completion of Algebra I-TE, the student will be able to graph and solve linear and quadratic equations, functions, inequalities, and systems of equations; simplify and factor polynomials; set up and solve a variety of equations and word problems that apply math concepts to real-world situations; calculate regression equations, probability and basic statistics, and conduct basic data analysis.

A TI-83+ or TI-84+ graphing calculator is strongly recommended.

**ALGEBRA I - TRADITIONAL**

Full Year

Grades 9, 10, 11, 12

Algebra I prepares the student to take Geometry. This traditional course requires oral and written expression of algebraic concepts. Students will be required to learn the "language" of algebra and cultivate traditional study habits associated with mathematics. At the end of the course, the student will be able to graph and solve linear and basic quadratic equations, simplify and factor polynomials, including polynomial fractions, and set up and solve a variety of verbal inequalities and systems of linear equations. Each student will be expected to allow thirty or forty minutes per night to study and practice the material covered in class. A TI-83+ or TI-84+ graphing calculator is strongly recommended.
