#### Algebra 1-2

ThinkTank Learning builds its classes to mimic the local high school curriculum. For this reason, there may be some variations from one center to the next, but the general list of topics in our Algebra 1-2 class (also called Algebra 1 in some districts) includes: writing and evaluating expressions; correctly applying the order of operations; representing functions as rules, tables, and graphs; identifying and manipulating real numbers; solving equations of one variable; identifying and understanding the various ways to represent a linear equation; plotting data and creating best-fit lines to interpolate and extrapolate; correctly manipulating and solving inequalities; introducing exponents – including negative, zero, and fractional exponents; identifying, classifying, adding, subtracting, multiplying and factoring polynomials; graphing quadratic functions – including identifying the axis of symmetry, vertex, and zeroes; simplifying and graphing radical functions; simplifying and graphing rational functions; and basic probability – including mutual exclusivity, dependence and independence, and compound events.
