A study of relations and functions, inequalities, algebraic expressions and equations (absolute value, polynomial, radical, rational), with a special emphasis on linear and quadratic expressions and equations. 

Upon completion, students will be able to:

  • Define, represent, and perform operations on real and complex numbers.
  • Recognize, understand, and analyze features of a function.
  • Recognize and use algebraic (field) properties, concepts, procedures (including factoring), and algorithms to combine, transform, and evaluate absolute value, polynomial, radical, and rational expressions.
  • Identify and solve absolute value, polynomial, radical, and rational equations.
  • Identify and solve absolute value and linear inequalities
  • Model, interpret and justify mathematical ideas and concepts using multiple representations.
  • Connect and use multiple strands of mathematics in situations and problems, as well as in the study of other disciplines.
