  • Add, subtract, multiply, and divide positive and negative rational numbers in decimal and fraction form
  • Use several transformations to solve equations and inequalities
  • Study points, lines, planes, polygons, and circles
  • Solve problems involving percents, ratios, and proportions
  • Graph equations, inequalities, and systems of equations
  • Calculate areas of plane figures
  • Calculate volumes and surface areas of space figures
  • Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to solve triangles and compute basic trigonometric ratios
  • Calculate statistical measures and expected value
  • Compute the probability of overlapping, independent, and dependent events
  • Add, subtract, multiply, and divide polynomials and monomials
  • Communicate strategies for solving word problems
