° the evaluation of positive rational roots and exponents,

° simplifying algebraic fractions, and factoring.

Equation solving, inequalities, and word problems

° solving verbal problems presented in algebraic context

° geometric reasoning

° the translation of written phrases into algebraic expressions

° graphing.
