Key Skills

So here's the thing: this is a math class. That means one thing: there will be numbers. Okay, two things. There will be a lot of building up from the stuff we learned since…well…kindergarten.

There will be a lot of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. And yes, PEMDAS is still a thing.

We'll still be asked to solve for x. In addition to this, we will also be asked to solve for a bunch of other variables. There will even be several variables linked to several equations. We'll learn how to solve for them all.

We'll also use what we've learned about graphing and jump right in to more interesting problems. Join Shmoop, and get fired up.
