Honors Algebra I 
Math 
Description: 
This is a class for students who have not done much work with variables and variable expressions in the 8th grade but are motivated and interested in beginning as 9th graders. This is a fast paced course which will cover topics including: simplifying expressions, solving equations and inequalities, solving linear systems by multiple methods, a complete study of exponents and exponential functions, polynomial, radiacals, basic trigonometry and quadratics, factoring, and solving quadratics. Steady work will be required.
