California Content Standards for Algebra:
1.0 Students identify and use the arithmetic properties of subsets of integers and rational, irrational, and real numbers, including
closure properties for the four basic arithmetic operations where applicable:
2.0 Students understand and use such operations as taking the opposite, finding the reciprocal.
3.0 Students solve equations and inequalities involving absolute values.
4.0 Students simplify expressions before solving linear equations and inequalities in one variable, such as 3(2x-5) + 4(x-2) = 12.
5.0 Students solve multistep problems, including word problems, involving linear equations and linear inequalities in one variable
and provide justification for each step.
6.0 Students graph a linear equation and compute the x- and y- intercepts (e.g., graph 2x + 6y = 4). They are also able to sketch the
region defined by linear inequality (e.g., they sketch the region defined by 2x + 6y < 4).
7.0 Students are able to derive linear equations by using the point-slope formula.
8.0 Students understand the concepts of parallel lines and perpendicular lines and how those slopes are related. Students are able to
find the equation of a line perpendicular to a given line that passes through a given point.
9.0 Students solve a system of two linear equations in two variables algebraically and are able to interpret the answer graphically.
Students are able to solve a system of two linear inequalities in two variables and to sketch the solution sets.
15.0 Students apply algebraic techniques to solve rate problems, work problems, and percent mixture problems.
16.0 Students understand the concepts of a relation and a function, determine whether a given relation defines a function, and give
pertinent information about given relations and functions.
17.0 Students determine the domain of independent variables and the range of dependent variables defined by a graph, a set of
ordered pairs, or a symbolic expression.
18.0 Students determine whether a relation defined by a graph, a set of ordered pairs, or a symbolic expression is a function and
justify the conclusion.
24.3 Students use counterexamples to show that an assertion is false and recognize that a single counterexample is sufficient to
refute an assertion.
25.1 Students use properties of numbers to construct simple, valid arguments (direct and indirect) for, or formulate
counterexamples to, claimed assertions.
25.2 Students judge the validity of an argument according to whether the properties of the real number system and the order of
operations have been applied correctly at each step.

Course Description
In this course students will be working with reasoning and calculations with symbols are central in algebra. Through the
study of algebra, a student develops an understanding of the symbolic language of mathematics and the sciences. In
addition, algebraic skills and concepts are developed and used in a wide variety of problem-solving situations. During this
course students will cover chapters 1- 6.

Classroom instruction
1. Warm up in which students should write down their math process and which is going to be stamp at the end of the class.
This time of the class involves students’ participation.
2. Questions about homework from previous night.
3. Instruction of new sections in which students are required to take notes.

Assignments: Homework is given each day (students will receive the algebra or geometry syllabus that show the California
content standards cover in each section, the page that students are going to work as a homework with their respective math
exercises. See syllabus for special instructions about these assignments.

Make-ups: Students will follow syllabus to present their late assignments. These ones are going to be evaluated over 70%
the following day after students’ absences., and there are ONLY 2 make-ups during the semester.

Tests, quizzes, and projects: Tests are cumulative and given at the end of the each chapter as well as the final at the end of
the semester. Quizzes are given in the middle of the chapter. (most of the time every 3rd. section) There is no credit to
correct answers without any math process. Posters are due right after taking the chapter test. Presentations are due on the
assigned day and values 10% of the grade.

Course Description
In this course students will be working with reasoning and calculations with symbols are central in algebra. Through the
study of algebra, a student develops an understanding of the symbolic language of mathematics and the sciences. In
addition, algebraic skills and concepts are developed and used in a wide variety of problem-solving situations. During this
course students will cover chapters 7-12.

Classroom instruction
1. Warm up in which students should write down their math process and which is going to be stamp at the end of the class.
This time of the class involves students’ participation.
2. Questions about homework from previous night.
3. Instruction of new sections in which students are required to take notes.

Assignments: Homework is given each day (students will receive the algebra or geometry syllabus that show the California
content standards cover in each section, the page that students are going to work as a homework with their respective math
exercises. See syllabus for special instructions about these assignments.

Make-ups: Students will follow syllabus to present their late assignments. These ones are going to be evaluated over 70%
the following day after students’ absences., and there are ONLY 2 make-ups during the semester.

Tests, quizzes, and projects: Tests are cumulative and given at the end of the each chapter as well as the final at the end of
the semester. Quizzes are given in the middle of the chapter. (most of the time every 3rd. section) There is no credit to
correct answers without any math process. Posters are due right after taking the chapter test. Presentations are due on the
assigned day and values 10% of the grade.

California Content Standards for Algebra:
1.0 Students identify and use the arithmetic properties of subsets of integers and rational, irrational, and real numbers, including
closure properties for the four basic arithmetic operations where applicable:
2.0 Students understand and use such operations as taking the opposite, finding the reciprocal.
3.0 Students solve equations and inequalities involving absolute values.
4.0 Students simplify expressions before solving linear equations and inequalities in one variable, such as 3(2x-5) + 4(x-2) = 12.
5.0 Students solve multistep problems, including word problems, involving linear equations and linear inequalities in one variable
and provide justification for each step.
6.0 Students graph a linear equation and compute the x- and y- intercepts (e.g., graph 2x + 6y = 4). They are also able to sketch the
region defined by linear inequality (e.g., they sketch the region defined by 2x + 6y < 4).
7.0 Students are able to derive linear equations by using the point-slope formula.
8.0 Students understand the concepts of parallel lines and perpendicular lines and how those slopes are related. Students are able to
find the equation of a line perpendicular to a given line that passes through a given point.
9.0 Students solve a system of two linear equations in two variables algebraically and are able to interpret the answer graphically.
Students are able to solve a system of two linear inequalities in two variables and to sketch the solution sets.
15.0 Students apply algebraic techniques to solve rate problems, work problems, and percent mixture problems.
16.0 Students understand the concepts of a relation and a function, determine whether a given relation defines a function, and give
pertinent information about given relations and functions.
17.0 Students determine the domain of independent variables and the range of dependent variables defined by a graph, a set of
ordered pairs, or a symbolic expression.
18.0 Students determine whether a relation defined by a graph, a set of ordered pairs, or a symbolic expression is a function and
justify the conclusion.
24.3 Students use counterexamples to show that an assertion is false and recognize that a single counterexample is sufficient to
refute an assertion.
25.1 Students use properties of numbers to construct simple, valid arguments (direct and indirect) for, or formulate
counterexamples to, claimed assertions.
25.2 Students judge the validity of an argument according to whether the properties of the real number system and the order of
operations have been applied correctly at each step.

Course Description
In this course students will be working with reasoning and calculations with symbols are central in algebra. Through the
study of algebra, a student develops an understanding of the symbolic language of mathematics and the sciences. In
addition, algebraic skills and concepts are developed and used in a wide variety of problem-solving situations. During this
course students will cover chapters 1- 6.

Classroom instruction
1. Warm up in which students should write down their math process and which is going to be stamp at the end of the class.
This time of the class involves students’ participation.
2. Questions about homework from previous night.
3. Instruction of new sections in which students are required to take notes.

Assignments: Homework is given each day (students will receive the algebra or geometry syllabus that show the California
content standards cover in each section, the page that students are going to work as a homework with their respective math
exercises. See syllabus for special instructions about these assignments.

Make-ups: Students will follow syllabus to present their late assignments. These ones are going to be evaluated over 70%
the following day after students’ absences., and there are ONLY 2 make-ups during the semester.

Tests, quizzes, and projects: Tests are cumulative and given at the end of the each chapter as well as the final at the end of
the semester. Quizzes are given in the middle of the chapter. (most of the time every 3rd. section) There is no credit to
correct answers without any math process. Posters are due right after taking the chapter test. Presentations are due on the
assigned day and values 10% of the grade.
