In this series we learn different techniques for solving equations, combine and isolate variables, talk about the equal sign, how to move around an equation, discuss the graphical meaning for solving equations, learn about restrictions, and how we would go about checking solutions.
Also included is an introduction to polynomial equations and functions, a discussion of their classifications, and factoring techniques, beginning with the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) and Simple Trinomial Factoring (Factoring techniques for polynomials is continued in Series IIIb).
In addition to the above, we also take a brief look at the difference between black holes and elementary particles.
