This guide, developed by a statewide committee in response to the legislature's mandate to develop statewide curriculum standards for required subjects, presents the content that should be taught in Algebra I. It was piloted by teachers in representative school systems and subsequently revised. Six goals for the course are listed, followed by a pacing chart suggesting the time to devote to each major topic. The major topics are the language of mathematics and algebra; operations on real numbers; first-degree equations and inequalities; polynomials; factoring monomials; multiplication and factoring of polynomials; fractions; linear equations and inequalities; real numbers, radicals, and quadratics; and relations and functions. The curriculum outline and performance objectives are then listed. In the following section, sample activities are presented, with content topic and objective noted for each. A brief list of books and other resources is given, evaluation techniques are noted, and an answer key to activities is provided. (MNS)
