Algebra I includes the continued study of variables, equations, and functions. Topics include solving equations and inequalities, simplifying expressions, polynomials and factoring, graphing, radicals, and expanding arithmetic knowledge. The instructional design is based on state standards and research stemming from the National Mathematics Advisory Panel’s Final Report. This course includes scaffolding in the form of animation, feedback, hints, and a glossary. Embedded critical mistakes and common misconceptions guidance lead students to understand the reasoning behind correct and incorrect responses. There is also an emphasis on repetition and practice. Projects can be completed offline and help students move into higher-level thinking based on Bloom’s Taxonomy.
