• # Algebra 1 - Period 2 and 6

Course Description of Illustrative Mathematics (IM):

“IM Algebra 1 is a problem-based core curricula rooted in content and practice standards to foster learning and achievement for all. Students learn by doing math, solving problems in mathematical and real-world contexts, and constructing arguments using precise language.”

Parents: I highly recommend creating a Canvas Parent Observer Account for full access! Here’s a link to a GVSD webpage with instructions on how parents can become observers in Canvas: https://www.gvsd.org/parent-canvas. They need their children to be able to create a pairing code in order to do so.

Student Outcomes

Throughout this year, students will expand and deepen their prior understanding of statistics, expressions, equations, and inequalities. Students will reason about equations, inequalities, and systems of equations and inequalities as ways to represent constraints, and they will reason about the process of solving equations and inequalities in terms of finding values that satisfy those constraints. The process of finding solutions may involve rewriting and manipulating equations. Students will learn to explain and validate the steps to do so. Throughout the course, students will practice reasoning about situations and mathematical representations, interpreting expressions and numbers in context, and using mathematical tools to model quantities and relationships.

Calculators I recommend (unless you are going to college for a math related degree - then might be a good idea to invest in this graphing calculator):  Get it Here (\$14.25) or I saw it at staples for \$14.99                       OR                  Get it Here (\$14.98) or I saw it at staples for \$17.99
