Through the year, students will be presented with many problem-solving strategies to apply to a broad introduction to basic algebra, including linear equations, ratios, quadratic equations, special factorizations, complex numbers, graphing linear and quadratic equations, linear and quadratic inequalities, functions, polynomials, exponents and logarithms, absolute value, and sequences and series.
