Course Description

This is the first of three courses designed to prepare you for university entrance. This course covers the properties of fractions, exponents and radicals, algebraic expressions, expanding and factoring polynomials, linear functions, systems of linear equations, and right-angled trigonometry. In terms of polynomial functions, this course will have an emphasis on functions of degree one (linear).
