Course Overview:
Algebra 1 is the first course in a sequence of three required high school courses
designed to ensure career and college readiness. The course represents a discrete
study of algebra with correlated statistics applications. Teaching and learning will
focus on the following mathematical concepts (units):
Unit 1 Unit 2 Unit 3 Unit 4 Unit 5 Unit 6
Relationships Reasoning Modeling Modeling
between with Linear and and
and Describing
Quantities Equations Analyzing Analyzing
Contrasting Data
and and Quadratic Exponential
Expressions Inequalities Functions Functions

Georgia Milestones EOC (End of Course) Assessment: In May 2020, each student will
complete the Georgia Milestones EOC assessment to determine if he/she meets the
standards outlined for Algebra 1. The score earned on this assessment is 20% of the
course grade.

MYP Information
This course is part of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme at North Atlanta High School which
aims to help IBMYP learners to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-
minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. The learning experiences will allow students to gain analytical
skills to promote informed decision-making, engage in teamwork and collaboration, frame their own inquiries,
pursue personal aspirations, set challenging goals and have persistence to achieve them. Students will work
towards a deepening of their conceptual understanding as they approach concepts from a range of perspectives. As
concepts are studied throughout the year, the following global contexts will be in constant consideration: identities
and relationships, orientation in time and space, fairness and development, globalization and sustainability,
scientific and technical innovation, and personal and cultural expression. IBMYP Assessments aim to support and
courage student learning by providing feedback and promoting deep understanding of subject content by
supporting students in their inquiry in real-world contexts. Specific assessment criteria with subject objectives will
be provided. A year-long IBMYP personal project accompanied by a journal is to be produced at the end of the 10th
grade year. The personal project enables students to engage in practical exploration through a cycle of inquiry,
action, and reflection. Timelines and descriptions of tasks will be provided. Students will be assessed on a 0-7 IB
scale in order to receive an IB grade at the end of the course. The IB grade will not affect students’ transcript grades
and it is for IB reporting purposes only.

It is the students’ and parents’ responsibility to make arrangements for make-up
work due to absences. Students should check the assignment calendar located on
the website and/or missing work crate upon return to class handouts. Students
should complete and submit missing work ASAP. Failure to comply with this
procedure will result in a grade of zero (0) being given for all graded assignments
missed during the absence.
It is important that all students turn in assignments on time. Many assignments build
upon each other and missing work can result in gaps in the student’s understanding of
the course material.

Hello Parents,
As the instructor, I plan to facilitate an active learning environment in which
students feel free to participate, express their ideas and take academic risks. The
expectation is for each student to come prepared and eager to learn. Guiding
students with thought-provoking, open-ended questions and real-world applications, I
will assess student learning to enhance the learning experience and ultimately,
increase student achievement. I look forward to an exciting, academically
challenging, and productive 2019-2020 school year.
Progress reports will be sent home for all students at the midpoint of each nine
weeks. This is to inform of your child’s status so the appropriate actions can be taken
for the student to improve. Also, I ask that you take advantage of our online
resources. Please use my website
I also encourage parents, as well as students, to join Remind 101 for reminders about
assignments and activities.
