Secondary Mathematics I

Strand: ALGEBRA - Reasoning With Equations and Inequalities (A.REI)

Understand solving equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning (Standard A.REI.1). Solve equations and inequalities in one variable (Standard A.REI.3). Solve systems of equations. Build on student experiences graphing and solving systems of linear equations from middle school. Include cases where the two equations describe the same line - yielding infinitely many solutions - and cases where two equations describe parallel lines - yielding no solution; connect to GPE.5, which requires students to prove the slope criteria for parallel lines (Standards A.REI.5-6). Represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically (Standards A.REI.10-12).

Standard A.REI.11

Explain why the x-coordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y = f(x) and y = g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equation f(x) = g(x); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where f(x) and/or g(x) are linear and exponential functions.

• ALGEBRA - Reasoning With Equations and Inequalities (A.REI) - Sec Math I Core Guide
The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) and educators around the state of Utah developed these guides for the Secondary Mathematics I - Reasoning with Equations and Inequalities (A.REI).
• Ideal Gas Law
The goal of this task is to interpret the graph of a rational function and use the graph to approximate when the function takes a given value.
• Introduction to the Materials (Math 1)
Introduction to the Materials in the Mathematics One of the The MVP classroom experience begins by confronting students with an engaging task and then invites them to grapple with solving it. As students ideas emerge, take form, and are shared, the teacher orchestrates the student discussions and explorations towards a focused mathematical goal. As conjectures are made and explored, they evolve into mathematical concepts that the community of learners begins to embrace as effective strategies for analyzing and solving problems.
