In comparing the Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 curriculums, I found that:


A.N.6 includes evaluating expressions involving absolute values
A2.A.1 includes solving absolute value equations and inequalities involving linear expressions in one variable.
Does this mean that Algebra 1 only evaluates but does not solve absolute value equations or inequalities
while Algebra 2 does solve these?Also, A.A.24 includes solving linear inequalities in one variable. It does not specifically mention compound inequalities.
Should these be included?
