Notations for Expressing Solutions (roster, set notation, interval notation) *
Solving Equations Algebraically (quick review, refer to "Refreshers" if needed)  Literal Equations - "Highlighting a Quantity" (solve for a specific variable) Truth Value of Equations (always true, true under certain conditions, always false) *
Graphing Linear Equations (table/chart, slope-intercept method, intercept method) *
Equations of Straight Lines (slope-intercept, point-slope, standard forms; horiz, vertical) *
Remembering Function Basics (definition, domain/range, vertical line test, notation) *
Linear Functions (defn, tables, equations, graphs, identity function, constant function) Examining Functions (examining slope, y-intercept, increase/decrease, match graphs) * Piecewise-Defined Functions (apply to linear only, methods of graphing, examples) *
Absolute Value Functions (as a piecewise function, features of graph, coefficients) Step Functions (as a piecewise function, definition, examples, greatest integer function) MODELING LINEAR EQUATIONS & FUNCTIONS:
