Algebra 1

The PowerTeaching curriculum for Algebra 1 focuses on five main critical areas:

  1. solve linear equations and systems of linear equations mathematically and graphically,
  2. understand the special equation y = mx + b and how to graph it or derive it from a graph on a coordinate plane,
  3. understand the concept and definition of a function and recognize different representations of functions,
  4. write and solve equations, inequalities, and systems of equations or inequalities to solve mathematical and real-world problems, and
  5. interpret complex expressions and find equivalent expressions to solve mathematical and real-world problems.


The Algebra 1 PowerTeaching curriculum also includes instruction on these secondary math concepts:

  1. extend and apply the properties of exponents to include rational exponents,
  2. learn and apply the properties of rational and irrational numbers, and
  3. apply the properties of addition, multiplication, exponents, and radicals to rewrite polynomials.


PowerTeaching for Algebra 1 continues to build student proficiency with the Standards for Mathematical Practice:

  • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
  • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
  • Model with mathematics.
  • Use appropriate tools strategically.
  • Attend to precision.
  • Look for and make use of structure.
  • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
