➯ Unit 1 - Algebraic Models & Exponents

In our first unit of the course students will learn to evaluate powers with rational exponents, simplify algebraic expressions involving exponents, and solve problems involving exponential equations both graphically and using
common bases. These skills will become very handy in future units when we deal with financial growth and decay.

 As usual, this outline is subject to change without notice. Attend class for the most up-to-date version.
