Unit 1 begins with setting the stage for work with expressions and equations through understanding quantities and the relationships between them.
Unit 2 will build on the concepts for linear and exponential relationships. Success in this unit will lay the groundwork for later units where the students will extend this knowledge to quadratic and exponential functions.
Unit 3 blends the conceptual understandings of expressions and equations with procedural fluency and problem solving. The students will not encounter solutions of quadratic equations that are complex.
Unit 4 presents standards that involve functions and extending the concepts of integer exponents to concepts of rational exponents. The understandings will be applied to other types of equations in future courses.
Unit 5 will build on previous work with descriptive statistics. Linear models will be used to assess how a model fits the data.
