  • Explain each step in solving a simple equation as following from the equality of numbers asserted at the previous step, starting from the assumption that the original equation has a solution. Construct a viable argument to justify a solution method.
  • Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letter
  • Understand that a function from one set (called the domain) to another set (called the range) assigns to each element of the domain exactly one element of the range. If f if a function and x is an element of its domain, then f(x) demotes the output of f corresponding to the input x. The graph of f is the graph of the equation y = f(x)
  • Understand that the graph of an equation in two variables is the set of all its solutions plotted in the coordinate plane, often forming a curve (which could be a line).
  • Use function notation, evaluate functions for inputs in their domains, and interpret statement that use function notation in terms of a context.
  • Relate the domain of a function to its graph and, where applicable, to the quantitative relationship it describes.



  • Represent a function by use of a table, graphing, or mapping
  • Write an equation in slope-intercept form (y =mx + b)
  • Determine the slope of a linear equation
  • Determine the slope of a line that passes through two points.
  • Graph a linear equation on a coordinate plane
  • Change a linear equation in standard form to slope-intercept form



  • Real Numbers System
  • Variables and Expressions
  • Order of Operations
  • Properties of Numbers
  • One Step Equations Relations/Functions
  • Solving one variable equations – one step, multi-­‐step, variables on both sides, absolute value, ratios and proportions, literal equations, dimensional analysis
  • Graphing Linear Equations Rate of Change/Slope
