This course provides a study of problems involving algebraic representations of rational equations. Topics include simplifying and performing operations with rational expressions and equations, understanding the domain, and determining the reasonableness of an answer. Upon completion, students should be able to find algebraic solutions to contextual problems with rational applications.
· Represent and solve contextual application problems involving operations on rational expressions and/or    equations.
· Explain the reasonableness of solutions found.

·Student Learning Outcomes
