The “Introduction to Algebra 1” course strives to take the stress out of algebra and provide a deep understanding of its concepts. The lessons are broken down into simple, repeatable steps. Algebra introduces the rules of math that are applicable to more complex courses. This course also emphasizes the real-world applications of algebra by having multiple lessons on word problems. This course introduces students to the concepts of algebra and prepares them to move on to more advanced algebra and geometry.

This course contains:

- 5 Units

- 30 Video Lessons

- 30 Guided Notes Sheets

- 30 Practice Problem Worksheets

- 30 Answer Review Videos (I explain how to solve each problem step-by-step)

- Over 300 Practice Problems

- 30 Quizzes at the end of each lesson

- 30 Guided Notes Answer Keys

- 30 Practice Problem Answer Keys

- More than 10 hours of Video Lessons

Course Goals: Upon course completion, students will be able to solve all types of one-variable equations, solve inequalities, graph linear equations and graph linear inequalities.

Target Audience: This course is primarily intended for 8^{th} or 9^{th} grade students who are new to algebra or need a quick refresher

Course Requirements: Students taking this course will need to have completed basic middle school math courses with a strong grasp of number skills. The first few lessons of this course review pre-algebra skills.

**It is recommended that each Notes sheet is printed before each lesson to follow along. **
