This course will cover approximately two-thirds of the standards/objectives normally taught in Algebra 1 and covers a wide range of topics such as area and volume, order of operations, evaluating algebraic expressions, two-step equation solving, systems of equations, probability and statistics, factoring, graphing, square roots, and various word problems.

**Transitional Algebra** The goal of this course is to provide a slower pace of learning to ensure that the student has additional time and additional activities to solidify Algebra 1 concepts and transition into Algebra 2 seamlessly. This course will cover approximately the final one-third of the standards/objectives normally addressed in Algebra 1 and the first one-third of the standards/objectives normally taught in Algebra 2.The concepts taught in Transitional Algebra include topics of distance, graphing, factoring, inequalities, square roots, abstract equations, and word problems.
