York Community High School

Algebra Applications

In this course students apply basic operations to real-life situations, generalizing to obtain an understanding of variables, expressions, and equations.  Students build proportional reasoning skills as they review equivalent fractions and percents.  Students use diagrams, tables, equations, and graphs to represent mathematical situations and solve problems, which often relate to real life applications. Though the focus of the course is on understanding prealgebra concepts and building foundational ideas of algebra, students will also develop the skills of simplifying expressions and solving simple linear equations.  A scientific calculator is required.
