High School Honors Algebra 1 Course
Dive into the world of mathematics with Excel High School's Honors Algebra 1 course, tailored to offer a comprehensive exploration of linear equations and their myriad applications. Starting with a concise review of essentials, Honors Algebra 1 meticulously guides students through equation-solving techniques, ensuring a robust understanding of foundational concepts. As learners navigate through the curriculum, they delve deeper into the realm of functions, spanning across topics like notation, domain and range, and practical modeling. The course draws a distinct line between linear and exponential functions, elucidating the nuances of additive versus multiplicative change, thereby enhancing data interpretation skills.
Central to Honors Algebra 1 is the emphasis on applying theoretical knowledge to tangible scenarios. Students get hands-on experience in analyzing scatterplots, leveraging lines of best fit, and applying regression techniques to real-world linear data models. As the course advances, students encounter sophisticated topics like rational exponents, quadratic and exponential expressions, leading up to an engaging introduction to non-linear functions, predominantly focusing on quadratics. Through a blend of graphical, numeric, symbolic, and verbal tools, Honors Algebra 1 equips students to tackle complex mathematical challenges, paving the way for their success in subsequent mathematical pursuits.
High School Honors Algebra 1
This course begins with a brief review of what students should already know about linear equations, with a focus on analyzing and explaining the process of solving equations. Students develop a strong foundation in working with linear equations in all forms, extending solution techniques to simple equations with exponents. Students explore functions, including notation, domain and range, multiple representations, and modeling. Through the comparison of linear and exponential functions, students contrast the concepts of additive and multiplicative change. Students then apply what they have learned to linear models of data, analyzing scatterplots and using lines of best fit to apply regression techniques. The course closes with an exploration of rational exponents, quadratic and exponential expressions, and an introduction to non-linear functions, with a heavy emphasis on quadratics.
