This course will briefly review Pre-Algebra concepts including adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions, decimals and percents. Algebra will help prepare students to approach and solve problems following a logical succession of steps and skills taught will be the foundation for upper level math and also demonstrate algebraic applications for practical uses. Topics will cover linear equations, functions, analytic geometry, manipulating exponents and polynomials, simplifying rational expressions, evaluating inequalities and absolute value, and simplifying radials. Problems explored are intended to be thought-provoking and also skill-sharpening. Students must possess a scientific or graphing calculator.
Prerequisite: Satisfactory completion of Pre-Algebra or Accelerated Pre-Algebra.
