I like to share bright, colorful
things with my students. These *Skill Review Certificates*
review fundamental algebra skills in a bright and visual way. The
make good "reference tools" when doing homework or
studying. Some tell me they can visualize theses handouts when
they take quizzes and tests.

I want my students to enter *Intermediate
Algebra 141* with a head-start and resources to help them
review. These printable, downloadable files are all .pdf's --
you will need __Acrobat
Reader__ to view them.

**Exponent
Expert. ** Working with exponents is a fundamental
skill. Let's make sure we all feel comfortable, confident, and can
accurately work with them.

**Polynomial
Ph.D. **The sum of terms raised to exponents are important
"building blocks" to many algebraic concepts. Let's
review the basics.

**Strategic
Factorer.** When we work with numbers and fractions,
factoring is a key skill. It is also the key to working with polynomials.

**Really Good
at Rational Expressions. ** When we write fractions that
contain polynomials in the numerator and denominator, they are called *rational
expressions*. Here's a simple review.

**Fully
Competent: Complex Fractions. ** Not all fractions have
simple numerators and denominators. When we have fractions made up
of fractions, they are called complex fractions. Sound
complex? Don't worry, here are some suggestions to make them easy
to work with.

**Linear
Equations.** Let's look at how we can model and predict with
mathematical statements and draw those statements as graphs.

**Systems of
Linear Equations. ** Many phenomena can be models with linear
equations. A system of equations contains more than 1; a solution
to the system has to also be a solution to each equation. Let's
review how it works.

**Rockin' at
Radicals. ** Let's review how to work with radicals and
roots.

**Quintessential
Quadratics.** Obviously, we cannot represent everything with
a linear equations, equations without variables. Quadratic
equations are important forms that are used to model many
situations.

**Parabolas.**
Often we have to write equations for lines that curve. The graph
of a quadratic equation is a special type of curved line called a *parabola*.
These equations have exponents, hence the curve. Let's look at how
this works using quadratic equations.
