Algebra

# WELCOME TO ALGEBRA

### This is a challenging course that will require you to be in class everyday, on time, with a pen/pencil and calculator. You must be in your seat when the bell rings and be prepared with your homework on your desk and ready to start the warm-up assignment!

### You will be taking a regents exam at the end of the year in June. Together, we will be working hard to prepare you for this exam. I strongly encourage you to take advantage of Extra help and please come to me if you have any questions.

**Topics Include:**

- Real Number and Expressions
- Equations and Functions
- Linear Relationships
- Exponential Relationships
- Statistics and Data
- Polynomial Expressions and Equations
- Functions and Modeling

You will become very familiar with the Standards for Mathematical Practice during this year and these standards will help you develop the skills necessary to solve real life problems :

1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

4. Model with mathematics.

5. Use appropriate tools strategically.

6. Attend to precision.

7. Look for and make use of structure.
