Student Learning Outcomes
Add, subtract, factor, multiply and divide: polynomials (including multiplying two binomials, or divide factorable polynomials); rational expressions; linear expressions with rational coefficients.

Write linear, polynomial and rational expressions as part of word-to-symbol translations or to represent common settings.

Evaluate linear, polynomial and rational expressions by substituting integers for unknown quantities.

Factor polynomial expressions.

Solve one-variable linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms or equations with coefficients represented by letters.

Solve real-world problems involving linear equations and inequalities.

Write one-variable and multi-variable linear equations, linear inequalities and quadratic equations to represent and explain context.

Solve a system of two simultaneous linear equations by graphing, substitution, or linear combination. Solve and communicate reasoning using real-world problems leading to a system of linear equations.

Solve linear inequalities in one variable with rational number coefficients.

Identify or graph the solution to a one variable linear inequality on a number line.
