Graduation requirement for Mathematics
Basic Assumptions for Mathematics Education:
• All students have access to calculators and computers.
• Classroom activities are student-centered, emphasizing concrete experiences and
• All courses have increased emphasis on problem solving, estimation, and real-world
• Evaluation includes alternative methods of assessment.
• All strands addressed in the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards are developed
across the PreK-12 curriculum.
A. Major Concepts/Content. The purpose of this course is to develop the algebraic
concepts and processes that can be used to solve a variety of real world and
mathematical problems. The content should include, but not be limited to, the
- Structure and properties of the real number system, with an emphasis on
- Variables and algebraic expressions.
- Varied means for analyzing and expressing patterns, relations, and functions, including
words, tables, graphs, geometric formulas, and linear
equations and inequalities.
- Solution strategies for simple linear equations and inequalities of one variable.
- Relations expressed by ratio, rates, and proportion.
- Coordinate geometry and graphing of linear equations and inequalities.
- Varied solution strategies, algebraic and graphic for linear functions.
- Data analysis concepts and techniques appropriate to identify patterns and make
- Algebraic notation, selected from the following: exponents, square roots, radicals,
absolute value, and scientific notation.
B. Special Note. Course completion and pass Algebra 1 EOC test, meet graduation requirements.
C. Course Requirements. These requirements include, but are not limited to, the
benchmarks from the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards that are most
relevant to this course. Benchmarks correlated with a specific course
requirement may also be addressed by other course requirements as appropriate.
Content may be used to fulfill course requirements. This course includes an
agreement related to minimum standards for behavior, attendance, and
After successfully completing this course, the student will:
1. Demonstrate understanding of the different ways numbers are represented and used
in the real world.
2. Demonstrate understanding of number systems.
3. Demonstrate understanding of the effects of operations on numbers and the
relationships among these operations, select
appropriate operations, and compute for problem solving.
4. Use estimation in problem solving and computation.
5. Demonstrate understanding and apply theories related to numbers.
6. Estimate measurements in real-world problem situations.
7. Use coordinate geometry to locate objects in two dimensions and to describe objects
