Algebra 1 - Semester 1


Math 8

Algebra 1 - Semester 1 is a single-semester course designed to build, develop, and periodically assess your subject-matter knowledge while strengthening your mathematical skills. Linear relationships are a main focus of this course. You’ll graph,

create, and solve linear equations and use function notation to describe linear relationships. You will also study linear transformations and represent linear data using scatter plots and mathematical models. You will write and solve systems of linear

equations and inequalities. At the end of this course, you’ll represent, compare, and analyze data sets in a variety of contexts.

Course Goals

By the end of this course, you will be able to do the following:

  • Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable.

  • Use function notation to describe relationships between quantities, and interpret function notation to solve problems.

  • Interpret and create graphs of linear relationships.

  • Write one-variable and two-variable linear equations and use them to solve problems.

  • Describe transformations defined by changes in the slope or the y-intercept of linear functions.

  • Represent data with scatter plots, and use mathematical models to solve problems.

  • Write systems of equations, and solve them using algebraic and graphical methods.

  • Represent data with dot plots, box plots, and histograms.

  • Analyze, interpret, and justify conclusions from a set of data.
