This course is designed to provide students with a foundational knowledge of linear and quadratic functions and graphing on the xy-coordinate system. The student solves and graph equations and inequalities. Students also learn to apply this knowledge to other areas of math, such as word problems, ratios, and proportions. The course starts off with a review of basic algebraic concepts, such as variables, order of operations, exponents, and problem-solving skills. It then moves on to a thorough introduction to functions and quadratic equations. Students learn how to solve linear equations, including multistep equations, equations with multiple variables, and equations involving decimals, as well as writing a linear equation based on the graph of a line.
