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

• Solve and graph single-variable 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, the quadratic formula, and by 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 slope-intercept, point-slope and standard forms of a line.

• Apply basic fundamental rules of exponents

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