Algebra I

Algebra Curriculum at The Beekman School

Algebra I introduces various topics that comprise elementary algebra. Students not only acquire important algebraic skills to simplify problems and solve equations, but they also gain an understanding of the concepts that lie at the heart of algebraic manipulations. In so doing, this course directly prepares the student for the questions concerning algebra on the mathematics sections of the SAT and the ACT, as well as providing a solid foundation on which to build in subsequent mathematics courses such as Geometry, Algebra II and Trigonometry.

Major topics include the algebraic modeling of real life problems, solving and graphing equations and inequalities; systems of equations; ratios and proportions; properties and use of exponents; mathematical modeling using functions, tables and graphs; number patterns, counting methods and permutations; polynomials and factoring; radical expressions and equations.
