Return to Self-Tests
In creating this self-test, I was limited by my inability to create mathematical symbols (I don't have the right font); therefore, I was only able to include very basic algebra questions here.  I do think, however, that these basics are a good way to jump-start your semester; everything else you will learn will be built upon them.  50 questions total.

Review the on the question itself to be taken to the answer page.

1.  What is the order of operations rule?
2.  Define set, union, intersection and subset.
3.  What are ...counting numbers?
4.  ...whole numbers?
5.  ...integers?
6.  ...rational numbers?
7.  ...irrational numbers?
8.  ...real numbers?
9. numbers?
10.  Illustrate the commutative properties (for addition and multiplication).
11.  Illustrate the associative properties (for addition and multiplication).
12.  Illustrate the identity properties (for addition and multiplication).
13.  Illustrate the inverse properties (for addition and multiplication).
14.  Illustrate the distributive properties (for addition and multiplication).
15.  a to the r power times a to the s power =
16.  (a to the r power) to the s power =
17.  (ab) to the r power =
18.  a to the -r power =
19.  (a/b) to the r power =
20.  a to the r power/a to the s power =
21.  a to the 1st power =
22.  a to the 0 power =
23.  (a+b) squared =
