## Algebra CurriculumAlgebra Algebra includes units on linear equations and inequalities, systems of linear equations, polynomials and nonlinear functions, radical and rational expressions, and statistics.
Students will learn to use symbols to express relationships and linear functions and inequalities to represent, model and solve real world problems. Connections between the verbal, tabular, graphical and algebraic models will be explored. Statistical data will often form the foundation for these explorations. Students will model stairs, ramps, ski slopes, etc. with linear functions with a particular emphasis on slope. They will learn various graphical and analytical strategies for solving systems of equations and inequalities. As students build to solve nonlinear equations, factoring of polynomials and the quadratic formula will be added to their list of problem solving strategies. Applications motivate lessons on exponential growth and square roots.
