Algebra I part 1

This is a full-year class that covers the first half of the content of Algebra I.  The class is designed to give students more time to understand and learn the abstract concepts of Algebra I.  Students will learn to work with variable expressions and patterns as well as solve linear equations.  Homework will be given.
