Algebra I focuses on the development of students' algebra skills such as working with polynomials, linear and quadratic equations, probability, and statistics.  A significant amount of time is spent on graphing lines, parabolas, absolute value and exponential functions, solving systems of equations both algebraically and by graphing, and solving word problems algebraically.  Biblical truth is emphasized throughout and application is frequently made relating to behavior and work ethic.  The awesomeness of God is noted in mathematical concepts being studied.
