Math III: Algebra

DESCRIPTION:
This course emphasizes the study of algebra. The course is presented in two semesters.

Semester 1 introduces and defines algebraic terms, the properties of zero and one, variables and constants, fractions, and factoring. It explains the use of powers, roots, and exponents as well as the order of operations. It demonstrates how to solve monomials and polynomials and whole number expressions.

Semester 2 defines, shows how to interpret, and translates equations as well as create and interpret graphs.
