MTH124: Honors Algebra I

Course Overview

K12 High School Honors Algebra I prepares students for more advanced courses while they develop algebraic fluency; learn the skills needed to solve equations; and perform manipulations with numbers, variables, equations, and inequalities. They also learn concepts central to the abstraction and generalization that algebra makes possible. Students learn to use number properties to simplify expressions or justify statements; describe sets with set notation and find the union and intersection of sets; simplify and evaluate expressions involving variables, fractions, exponents, and radicals; work with integers, rational numbers, and irrational numbers; and graph and solve equations, inequalities, and systems of equations. They learn to determine whether a relation is a function and how to describe its domain and range; use factoring, formulas, and other techniques to solve quadratic and other polynomial equations; formulate and evaluate valid mathematical arguments using various types of reasoning; and translate word problems into mathematical equations and then use the equations to solve the original problems. The course is expanded with more challenging assessments, optional exercises, and threaded discussions that allow students to explore and connect algebraic concepts. There is also an independent honors project each semester.
