# Algebra 8AB (8th)

**Welcome to Algebra 8AB**

In this course the student will learn the basic content and skills of traditional algebra, and how each skill is supported by definitions and theorems in mathematics. The student will learn how to think in mathematical ways to help solve more complex problems in different areas of application. The student will have opportunities to work individually and in collaborative groups to solve problems encountered in business and science. The student will learn how to write algebraic equations from words or diagrams, interpret the graph of a function, set up and use ratios in problem solving, solve equations and determine if the solution is relative to the original problem. The student will learn how to take notes so that they can use the information to help them solve problems and justify the steps in their solutions to a problem.
