Course Overview
**Algebra I is focused on the following four main conceptual categories:

**Number & Quantity:**The Real Number System, Quantities

**Algebra:**Seeing Structure in Expressions, Arithmetic with Polynomials and Rational Expressions, Creating Equations, Reasoning with Equations and Inequalities

**Functions:**Interpreting and Building Functions, Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential Models

**Statistics and Probability:**Interpreting categorical and quantitative data

This course will ask students to focus on mathematical language to help strengthen tools for picturing, stating, and executing mathematical problems. We will become investigators through the integration of technology to help become experts in topics, while discovering new and innovative ways to see and learn mathematics in different forms. I encourage students to use the websites listed online to study and review at home as often as possible. Homework will be extremely important in determining your success in this class. Going home and practicing what was learned in class is an excellent tool to strengthen your understanding of the material.

**Students will take the Algebra I Regents exam in June 2017.**

I look forward to an exciting year together as we discover the wonderful world of mathematics and develop the tools necessary to become life-long learners!
