## First Section - Solving Stuff

The first quarter of the year is all about "Solving Stuff." And when I say "stuff" I mean equations, inequalities, systems of equations, systems of inequalities, absolute value equations, etc. It may seem like a lot, but realize that it is all just solving. What particular thing you're solving usually doesn't change your strategies that much.

For each of the following units, I'll post the assignments for your viewing pleasure and even post solutions to some/all of them so you can check your work.

**REMEMBER: Solutions are to help you if you get stuck. You won't learn much if you just copy it down.**## Unit 1 - Writing Equations (and Inequalities sometimes)

Before we can solve equations, we need to know how to build them and how they describe real situations.
