Upon successfully completing the course, the student should have mastered the following concepts:

Solve and graph single variable, absolute value, and linear equations and inequalities.

Solve linear, quadratic and exponential systems of equations using graphing, substitution or elimination.

Evaluate and solve quadratic equations and inequalities using graphing, factoring, quadratic formula, and completing the square.

Interpret and apply the relationship between the independent and dependent variable in a linear, exponential, and quadratic function through algebraic modeling and applications.

Form an equation of a line using the slopeintercept, pointslope, and standard forms of a line.

Apply basic fundamental rules of rational exponents.

Be able to construct a formula or equation necessary to solve algebraic word problems involving area, perimeter, and linear systems of equations, basic statistical reasoning, distance, and compounding interest.

Simplify and perform operations with radical expressions such as addition and subtraction, multiplication, and division.

Perform operations with polynomials such as addition and subtraction, multiplication, and factoring.

Interpret and analyze measures of central tendency, scatter plots, and frequency tables.
