This is a first–semester course that covers basic topics in algebra and trigonometry. Upon completion of this course, the students simplify algebraic and numerical expressions utilizing the fundamental operations. Students have a basic understanding of the rectangular coordinate system, are able to plot points, use a calculator to graph functions, and evaluate functions at a given point. Students solve systems of two and three linear equations; work with trigonometric, logarithmic, and exponential functions; and perform the fundamental operations on fractional algebraic expressions. Finally, students are able to solve problems in technology involving ratio, proportion, and variation.
