1. Solve linear equations, linear inequalities, systems of linear equations, and literal equations.
2. Convert between the graph and the equation of a line.
3. Simplify polynomials and expressions involving integer exponents.
5. Identify functions and use function notation.
6. Use unit analysis to convert measurements.
7. Solve ratio, rate, and proportional reasoning problems.
8. Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems.
9. Use resources available to students on campus such as the Math Learning Center.

Program Outcomes
1. Recognize which quantitative or symbolic reasoning methods are appropriate for solving a given problem.
2. Correctly implement the quantitative or symbolic reasoning methods that are appropriate for solving a given problem.
3. Translate data into various formats such as symbolic language, equations, graphs, and formulas.

College-wide Outcomes
