Welcome to the 9th/ 10th grade. This is a year long Algebra class that is divided into two semesters. The 1st (fall) semester is Foundations of Algebra and the 2nd (spring) semester is Algebra I.
The 1st semester is designed to work on skills that were learned in the 8th grade and building upon them. This is done to make sure that students are ready because in the 2nd semester these skills will be needed as they are the building blocks for all that we will be doing.
