In this course, students will accelerate their understanding of Algebra where curricular gaps may exist; upon successful completion of this course the student will be prepared for entry-level college coursework.  This course addresses operations of real numbers, graphs of linear equations and inequalities, arithmetic on polynomial expressions, properties of exponents, perimeters and areas of 2D figures, scientific notation, and intrasystem metric conversions. Students will factor polynomials, perform arithmetic operations on rational expressions and complex fractions, solve rational, quadratic and literal equations; apply the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems, simplify radical expressions containing numerical and variable radicands, and solve systems of linear equations.
