Here are the things that should have been covered before you should do this unit:

Solving an equation for a specific variable. (Examples)

Evaluating algebraic expressions. (Examples)

Finding and extending patterns in number sequences. (Examples)

Finding the median of a set of data. (Examples)

This unit is on **relations** and
**functions**, two very important topics to be developed.

At the end of this sections your students should be able to do the following:

Graph ordered pairs, relations, and equations

Solve problems by making a table

Identify the domain, range, and inverse of a relation

Determine if a relation is a function

Write an equation to represent a relation

Calculate and interpret the range, quartiles, and interquartile range of a set of data
