Honors Algebra 2: Basic Arithmetic Review - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives

Finding the greatest common factor, the least common multiple, using the order of operations and applying mathematical properties sounds like fairly basic stuff, and so it is. However, these skills are crucial to solving much more than the problems on the pages of a textbook. By applying these principles, you can solve problems in chemistry, engineering and other areas that require calculations. The lessons in this chapter will help you with the skills shown below:

• Using the order of operations to solve math problems
• Working with the commutative and associative properties
• Understanding the multiplicative property of zero
• Identifying and describing the units in the metric system
• Performing unit conversions
