• simplify algebraic, rational, and radical expressions
• solve both linear and quadratic equations and inequalities
• solve word problems involving linear and quadratic equations and inequalities
• solve polynomial, rational, and radical equations and applications
• solve and graph linear, quadratic, absolute value, and piecewise-defined functions
• perform operations with functions as well as find composition and inverse functions
• graph quadratic, square root, cubic, and cube root functions
• graph and find zeroes of polynomial functions
• perform vertical and horizontal shifts and reflections of a basic graph;
• perform stretches and compressions on a basic graph
• transform the graph of a general function
• graph quadratic functions by completing the square, using the vertex formula, and using transformations
• solve and graph exponential and logarithmic equations
• solve systems of linear equations and inequalities
• model and solve applications using linear systems
• evaluate and find partial sums of a series
