Ohio Algebra 1 A/B

Ohio Algebra 1 A/B is a two-semester course designed to improve and assess students’ mathematical skills and offers 100% alignment to the Ohio's Learning Standards for Mathematics. It includes lessons that focus on the graphical representation of linear and nonlinear relationships. Students will create, graph, and solve linear and exponential equations and inequalities. They will use function notation to describe relationships between quantities and interpret function notation to solve problems. Students will learn to determine explicit and recursive functions that model arithmetic or geometric sequences. This course also has lessons on representing and analyzing data, and on manipulating and interpreting expressions, quadratic equations and inequalities, and functions. Students will add, subtract, and multiply linear and quadratic polynomials. They will create, graph, and solve quadratic equations and inequalities in one and two variables. Students will rewrite, graph, and interpret quadratic, absolute value, piecewise, and step functions. They will use functions to model relationships between quantities, identify the effects of transformations on functions, and compare representations of functions. Online discussions, course activities, and unit activities help students to develop and apply critical thinking skills.
