Beginning Algebra

This course is designed to cover the topics found in a year long high school algebra course. The course builds on the skills begun in pre-algebra to lay a foundation for mathematical problem solving. 

You will read, define and apply algebraic and functional vocabulary and symbols; evaluate and perform algebraic operations on rational, radical, and polynomial expressions; set up and solve word problems involving linear, quadratic and rational expressions; and construct and graph linear equations given appropriate information.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

1. Solve word problems and equations involving linear, quadratic and rational
expressions using appropriate algebraic techniques.
2. Evaluate and perform algebraic operations on polynomial, rational and radical
expressions
3. Manipulate and analyze linear equations including finding slope, intercepts, graphs
and construct an equation.
