Welcome to the NROC Elementary Algebra course. This course is a study of the basic skills and concepts of elementary algebra, including language and operations on sets, operations on signed numbers, simple linear equations and inequalities in one variable, operations on polynomials (including beginning techniques of factoring), integer exponents, brief introduction to radicals, introduction to graphing, and applications. This curriculum emphasizes a multi-representational approach to algebra, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed graphically, analytically, and verbally.<p/>
Upon completion of this course you will:<p/>
<li>Demonstrate knowledge of algebraic concepts, properties and terminology when working with the real number system</li>
<li>Demonstrate mastery of algebraic algorithms relative to subsets of the real numbers, numerical expressions, algebraic expressions, linear equations and inequalities, graphing of linear equations by applying the necessary algebraic manipulations, and quadratic equations</li>
