This course provides a study of problems involving algebraic representations of quadratic equations. Topics include basic polynomial operations, factoring polynomials, and solving polynomial equations by means of factoring. Upon completion, students should be able to find algebraic solutions to contextual problems with quadratic applications.

·. Represent real-world applications as quadratic equations.
·. Apply exponent rules.
·. Solve application problems involving polynomial operations.
·. Apply the principles of factoring when solving problems.
·. Analyze the graph of a quadratic function.

·Student Learning Outcomes

1. Demonstrate the use of a problem solving strategy to include multiple representations of the situation, organization of the information, and algebraic representation of quadratic equations.
2. Add and subtract polynomials.
3. Apply exponent rules.
4. Multiply polynomials.
5. Divide a polynomial by a monomial.
6. Factor trinomials using multiple methods.
7. Factor the difference of two squares.
8. Solve quadratic applications using the zero product property and critique the reasonableness of solutions found.
9. Given the graph of a parabola, identify the vertex and x-intercepts.
