Full course description
This course will build on your existing knowledge of mathematics by developing skills and strategies that you can apply in many areas of your life. Algebra is the foundation for geometry, higher-level algebra courses, trigonometry, and calculus. The concepts you learn in this course will be used in every math class you take. This course explains the terms used in algebra, introduces functions and how to graph them, and gives you the ability to solve and write equations, inequalities, and systems. Not only will you learn the skills needed for these concepts, but you will also work with applications for real-world situations.

There is no prerequisite for this course, although a year of pre-algebra (such as IU High School's Pre-Algebra First Semester and Second Semester) is recommended. A basic knowledge of operations with fractions, decimals, and integers also is suggested.
This course is designed to be self-contained, with no required textbook . You will need a scientific calculator, a ruler or straight edge, and a supply of coordinate plane graph paper. Access to a scanner for scanning assignments to be uploaded is also required.
