Algebra 1

by Melani Taylor

Algebra I 

1st 6 weeks

 

Week 1

Chapter 1:  Review of basic 8th grade math

- variables and expressions

- order of operations

- open sentences

- identity and equality properties

- distributive property

- commutative and associative property

- number systems 

 

Weeks 2 - 6

C-scope Unit 1: 

Exemplar Lesson 01: Characteristics of Functions (suggested time 14 days)
Students will collect and organize data using various representations. They will identify the characteristics such as independent/dependent variables, domain and range, continuous/discrete, and increasing/decreasing relationships. Students will make predictions from the representations. Students will compare and evaluate functions in y = and f(x) notation. Two extra days are allotted in this lesson in case we need time for additional review or want to do supplementary activities.

 

 Exemplar Lesson 02: Comparison of Functions (suggested time 11 days)
Students will investigate and compare linear and nonlinear functions, including quadratic, exponential, and rational functions. Students will collect and organize data using various representations. They will continue to identify the characteristics of functions such as independent/dependent variables, domain and range, continuous/discrete, increasing/decreasing, and inverse relationships. Students will make predictions from the representations.

 

     

 

2nd 6 weeks

 Equations and Inequalities (15 days)
Students will solve equations and inequalities using various methods, including concrete models, tables, graphs, and algebraic methods. Students will also determine equations to represent problem situations, solve the equations, and justify the final solutions in terms of the problem situation.
 
 Investigating Linear Functions (10 days)
In this lesson, students will identify the linear parent function and describe the effects of parameter changes on the graph of the linear parent function. Characteristics of linear functions, including slope, intercepts, and forms of equations will be investigated. Linear functions will be written and evaluated in function notation. Linear inequalities will be represented graphically.
