Typically, students in high school are introduced to Algebra I. Although some students may take Algebra I as early as 8th grade depending on their math skills. An Algebra I curriculum will formalize and extend student’s knowledge on several areas including linear and exponential relationships, descriptive statistics, quadratic functions, and more.

Below you’ll find helpful information on our algebra I homeschool curriculum, learning objectives you can set to ensure your student is mastering these skills, and more.

How to Teach Algebra I

A high-quality introduction to algebra I should address graphing, solving equations, inequalities, percentages, integers, and more. With the right curriculum on your side, teaching algebra I should not be overwhelming at all. If the curriculum is engaging and fun for your student, they will start learning algebra I in no time.

Below are some tips to help you teach high school algebra I.

  • Activate prior knowledge before starting a lesson to determine if it’s necessary to review previous concepts.
  • Use engaging videos to teach new, complex concepts.
  • Work through problems step by step, explaining each one, and ensuring students understand each step.
  • Allow students plenty of opportunities to analyze and discuss solved problems and equations.
  • Use real-world examples so students can understand how the concepts actually apply to real life.
  • Make sure your student knows the order of operations PEMDAS (parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition and subtraction).
  • Have them practice solving the operations without a calculator for when they are not allowed to use one.
  • Help them organize long problems to avoid errors, such as starting a new line for every step toward solving the problem.

Learning Objectives for Algebra I

The main goal of Algebra I is to develop fluency in working with linear equations and extend their knowledge of irrational numbers, experience with tables, and graphs as well as help them make meaningful connections to real life’s experiences. Additionally, an algebra I course should promote inquiry and a focus on big ideas.

Each one of your algebra I lessons should objectives for your child to achieve. These can look something like this:

  • Determine the domain and range of a functional relationship.
  • Identify the slope and y-intercept of a linear function.
  • Create absolute value equations to model and solve problems.
  • Solve a system of linear equations using substitution.
  • Evaluate a quadratic function using tables, graphs, and equations.
  • Make reasonable estimates using rational and irrational numbers.
  • Accurately simplify numerical expressions containing square roots.
  • Successfully find common monomial factors of polynomials.
