HMH Algebra 1: Student Edition 2015 1st Edition




Algebra I is the first course in a sequence of three required high school courses designed to ensure career and college readiness. The course represents a discrete study of algebra with correlated statistics applications. The standards in the threecourse high school sequence specify the mathematics that all students should study in order to be college and career ready.
Additional mathematics content is provided in fourth credit courses and advanced courses including precalculus, calculus, advanced statistics, discrete mathematics, and mathematics of finance courses. High school course content standards are listed by conceptual categories including Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Conceptual categories portray a coherent view of high school mathematics content; a student’s work with functions, for example, crosses a number of traditional course boundaries, potentially up through and including calculus. Standards for Mathematical Practice provide the foundation for instruction and assessment.
The endofcourse (EOC) measures are administered at the completion of the course, regardless of the grade level. These measures serve as the final exam for the course, and contribute 20% to the student’s final course grade.
End of Course Domain Approximate Percent of Test
 Equations 30%
 Expressions 20%
 Functions 35%
 Algebra Connections to Statistics and Probability 15%
