This course introduces basic algebra concepts and assists in building skills for performing specific mathematical operations and problem solving. Students solve equations, evaluate algebraic expressions, solve and graph linear equations and linear inequalities, graph lines, and solve systems of linear equations and linear inequalities. These concepts and skills serve as a foundation for subsequent coursework. Applications to real-world problems are integrated throughout the course. This course is the first half of the college algebra sequence, which is completed in Algebra 1B.
