Algebra 1

Academic Year Mathematics

In Algebra 1, students engage with various expressions from an algebraic and geometric perspective. They learn to solve linear and quadratic equations as well as how to represent expressions in the Cartesian plane. Students are imbued with a deep understanding of the general concept behind functions and are introduced to several important types of functions. Students are also introduced to the rich field of complex numbers. As with previous courses, we continue to emphasize challenging word problems to train students how to apply their new tools. Advanced problems from contests such as MATHCOUNTS, AMC 8, and AMC 10 are included throughout the course.

Homework and exams:

Students should expect to spend 1-3 hours on homework every week. Homework will be assigned and completed through the class website, where students receive immediate feedback on their work. Students will take three in-class exams throughout the course.

Textbook:

The textbook for the course is Introduction to Algebra by Art of Problem Solving.

Hardcopy and temporary access to the online version of the textbook are included in the tuition and fees of this course.
