Algebra 1

Academic Year Mathematics

In Algebra 1, students engage with various expressions from an algebraic and geometric perspective. They learn to solve linear and quadratic equations as well as how to represent expressions in the Cartesian plane. Students are imbued with a deep understanding of the general concept behind functions and are introduced to several important types of functions. Students are also introduced to the rich field of complex numbers. As with previous courses, we continue to emphasize challenging word problems to train students how to apply their new tools. Advanced problems from contests such as MATHCOUNTS, AMC 8, and AMC 10 are included throughout the course.

Students completing Algebra 1 are ready to apply their algebra skills to our Geometry course.

Textbooks: Introduction to Algebra by Art of Problem Solving.

Hardcopy and temporary access to the online version of the textbooks are included in the tuition and fees of this course.

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our Algebra 1 course.
"AoPS Academy is such a valuable resource for my two daughters and our family.  We kept hitting brick walls with our former school and the Director of AoPS Academy was the first person to honestly explain to us options and provide us with information so that we could make informed decisions about their education.  For that we are forever grateful and trust him beyond measure. AoPS Academy is far more than just an after-school academic training center. They have gone above and beyond to help our children's talents develop into their full potential.  Art of Problem Solving Academy will continue to be a key part of our long-term education plan.  The results have been amazing! They are truly my children’s first school, even though they are an after-school program!"
