Algebra 1A S1
Algebra I-A and I-B provide an expanded, two-year course sequence designed for students who are not prepared for the academic challenges of the traditional one-year Algebra I curriculum.

Focusing on review of pre-algebra skills and introductory algebra content, Algebra I-A allows students to deepen their understanding of real numbers in their various forms and then extend their knowledge to linear equations in one and two variables.

Algebra I-A features ample opportunity for students to hone their computational skills by working through practice problem sets before moving on to formal assessment.

To assist students for whom language presents a barrier to learning or who are not reading at grade level, Algebra I-A includes audio resources in both Spanish and English.

Two versions of the Algebra I-A course are offered: one aligned with Florida's Next Generation Sunshine State Standards and Benchmarks, and the other with California's Algebra I Mathematics Content Standards. Detailed correlations to standards for other states are available upon request.
