Enroll in Pre-Algebra with Dolphin STEM Academy
Mathematics is the study of patterns around us. In M/J Pre-Algebra, Semester A, you will explore transformations and solve linear equations. You will also solve realworld problems with two linear equations. In this course, you will study and interpret functions that can help you solve problems you encounter in everyday life.
By the end of this course, you will:
Explore and verify the properties of transformations and describe their effects.
Understand that two figures are congruent or similar if one can be obtained from the other
by a sequence of rotations, reflections, or translations.
Examine the properties of the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal.
Solve linear equations with rational coefficients and give examples of linear equations with
one, infinitely many, or no solutions.
Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope, and compare two
different proportional relationships represented in different ways.
Derive the equations y = mx and y = mx + b.
Use similar triangles to explain why the slope is the same between any two points on a line.
Solve a system of linear equations algebraically and by finding the point of intersection.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems with two linear equations.
Understand functions, describe properties of linear and nonlinear functions, and compare
properties of functions represented in different ways.
Construct and interpret functions given in verbal descriptions, two coordinate values, tables,
or a graph.
