Intermediate Algebra expands on the mathematical content of Basic Algebra. Emphasis will be on functions and algebraic solutions to various types of problems. Abstract thinking skills (including some proofs, and the notion of ‘generality of a statement’) will be introduced and cultivated.

After completing the course, students will be able to:

- Be conversant with a number of mathematical topics (see the Course Description for a list of these topics)
- Have enough computational skill with each topic that they will be able to correctly apply that skill whenever such skill is required in a subsequent mathematics course
- Come away with an understanding and appreciation of where the topics arise in real world applications

- Linear and Quadratic Functions
- Radical Functions
- Rational Functions
- Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
- Trigonometric Functions
- Systems of Equality
- Geometry
- Conic Sections
- Probability Statistics
- Patterns and Sequences, Logic and Reasoning
