California's Algebra I-A and I-B courses address the need for an expanded, two-year treatment of traditional high school Algebra I curriculum. Algebra I-B course topics include a review of introductory algebra; measurement; graphing data; linear equations; systems of linear equations; polynomials; factoring of polynomials; factoring of quadratic functions; and rational expressions.
Algebra I-B features ample opportunity for students to hone their computational skills by working through practice problem sets before moving on to formal assessment.
To assist students for whom language presents a barrier to learning or who are not reading at grade level, Algebra I-B includes audio resources in both Spanish and English.
When used together, Algebra I-A and Algebra I-B meet California's Algebra I Mathematics Content Standards.
