We have a hard time trusting anything that spends its time substituting one thing for another, and Algebra I is no exception. Good thing this isn't like the time our parents tried to convince us that 17 carrots were equivalent to a steak (17c = s). Instead, the Florida Algebra I End-of-Course Assessment covers functions, linear equations, inequalities, polynomials, rationals, radicals, quadratics, and discrete mathematics! Okay, let's try that again. Good thing Shmoop has a benchmark assessment to identify the pain points and intervention materials to help address them.
Describe function concept, notation, identification, and equations. (MA.912.A.2.3)
"You only get out as much as you put in." We hear people say this about studying, sports, practicing an instrument, and living life itself. It also describes functional relationships, because every input has exactly one output.
Suppose we drink two glasses of lemonade at the last picnic of the summer. Then we'll likely take four trips to the lav in the next three hours. If we drink four glasses, we'll hit the head eight times in the next three hours. Six glasses will send us to the toilet a whopping dozen times over the next three hours.
Our nickname back in elementary school was "Peanut Bladder." We have no idea why.
Not to mention tons of practice questions and test specific strategies!
