Algebra I

  • 2.0 Students understand and use such operations as taking the opposite, finding the reciprocal, and taking a root. They understand and use the rules of exponents. [1 question]
  • 3.0 Students solve equations and inequalities involving absolute values. [1 question]
  • 4.0 Students simplify expressions before solving linear equations and 2 inequalities in one variable, such as 3(2x-5) + 4(x-2) = 12. [2 questions]
  • 5.0 Students solve multistep problems, including word problems, involving linear equations and linear inequalities in one variable and provide justification for each step. [1 question]
  • 6.0 Students graph a linear equation and compute the x- and y-intercepts (e.g., graph 2x + 6y = 4). [1 graphing item; 1 computing item]
  • 7.0 Students verify that a point lies on a line, given an equation of the line. Students are able to derive linear equations. by using the point-slope formula. [1 question]
  • 8.0 Students understand the concepts of parallel lines and perpendicular lines and how their slopes are related. Students are able to find the equation of a line perpendicular to a given line that passes through a given point. [1 question]
  • 9.0 Students solve a system of two linear equations in two variables algebraically and are able to interpret the answer graphically. Students are able to solve a system of two linear inequalities in two variables and to sketch the solution sets. [1 question]
  • 10.0 Students add, subtract, multiply, and divide monomials and polynomials. Students solve multistep problems, including word problems, by using these techniques. [1 question]
  • 15.0 Students apply algebraic techniques to solve rate problems, work problems, and percent mixture problems. [1 question]
