Intermediate Algebra
Intermediate Algebra studies the construction and resulting properties of the real number system. Students simplify and factor algebraic expressions using fundamental laws and order of operations, solve first and second degree equations and inequalities in one variable, solve exponential and logarithmic equations, graph first degree and second degree equations and inequalities in two variables, solve 2x2 and 3x3 systems of equations, simplify and solve equations involving rational expressions, and simplify and solve equations involving fractional exponents and radicals. Students are introduced to linear, quadratic, square root, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions. The basic definitions of functions, relations, one-to-one functions, and inverses are discussed along with the algebra and composition of functions.
