Smart Tutor’s **Algebra** curriculum is designed to help students understand patterns, relations, functions, use of models and algebraic symbols to analyze mathematical situations. Students learn to:

- Sort, classify, and order objects by size, number, and other properties
- Recognize, describe, extend, and make generalizations about geometric and numeric patterns
- Represent and analyze patterns and functions, using words, tables, and graphs
- Identify such properties as commutativity, associativity, and distributivity and use them to compute with whole numbers
- Represent the idea of a variable as an unknown quantity using a letter or a symbol
- Express mathematical relationships using equations
- Model problem situations with objects and use representations such as graphs, tables and equations to draw conclusions
- Investigate how a change in one variable relates to a change in a second variable
