Algebra is the study of relationships between known and unknown quantities and the concepts arising from them. This course is the foundation for high school mathematics courses. It is the bridge from the concrete to the abstract study of mathematics. Topics include simplifying expressions, evaluating and solving equations and inequalities, and graphing linear and quadratic functions and relations. Real-world applications are presented within the course content and a function’s approach is emphasized.
