## List of Concepts Taught in Algebra I

Every mathematics textbook and website is organized in a different manner. However, each contains the same concepts. Use your class notes and textbook to help you determine the concept you are currently studying.

You can use the terms below to help you search for Algebra I concepts:

Properties of Numbers How numbers relate, combine, and behave with other numbers.

• Integers - Add, subtract, multiply, divide
• Fractions - Add, subtract, multiply, divide
• Exponents – whole number, negative, and fractional
• Scientific notation – convert numbers from standard to scientific and vice versa
• Scientific notation – Multiplying and dividing
• Radicals – estimating, simplifying, rationalizing the denominator
• Polynomials – adding and subtracting (combine like terms)
• Polynomials – multiplying (using distributive property) and dividing

Symbol manipulation Understanding reasons and developing efficient procedures for determining unknown quantities in an algebraic equation.

• Solving linear equations
• Solving quadratic equations by factoring, completing the square, grouping, and quadratic equation

Graphical Representation How equations can represent a picture and vice versa. How changes in the equation affect the accompanying picture.

• Understanding slope of a line
• Linear equations in slope-intercept, standard, or point-slope form
• Writing equation of line from two points, point and slope, or point and parallel/perpendicular slope
• Writing linear equation from graphed line
