**Objectives**

- Algebra I is the first course in elementary algebra. It is preceded by Pre-algebra and followed by Algebra II. It was originally created as a high school course but over time has increasingly been taught in eighth grade or earlier.
- It introduces the idea of calculations using symbols, and the basic properties of the arithmetic operations (e.g. addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) for various sets of numbers (e.g. the natural numbers, the integers, rational, irrational and real numbers). It involves simplifying expressions involving variables and constants, and solving linear equations.
- 2-hour sessions, 12 weeks.
- Text: Glencoe Math’s Algebra 1
