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.
"General coaching classes at many academic training centers stress repetition of the concept until a student grasps it thoroughly. At AoPS Academy, they go far beyond repetition. Their highly qualified instructors do a great job at teaching fundamental concepts to students at much greater depth, and challenge them to walk that extra mile by presenting them with more complex problems to solve. It provides a great learning experience in a friendly, fun, yet competitive and challenging environment. They provide their students with a combination of excellent instructional curriculum along with amazing online tools. AoPS Academy also encourages students to take part in various competitions. Overall they do an incredible job imparting a deep knowledge of both math and language arts to all of their students, and AoPS Academy sets them on a path towards their career goals. We are happy to be part of AoPS Academy family!"
