CK-12 Foundation's Basic Algebra, Volume 2 FlexBook covers the following six chapters:

Systems of Equations and Inequalities; Counting Methods - introduces students to linear systems of equations and inequalities as well as probability and combinations. Operations on linear systems are covered, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Exponents and Exponential Functions - covers more complex properties of exponents when used in functions. Exponential decay and growth are considered, as are geometric sequences and scientific notation. Polynomials and Factoring; More on Probability - introduces students to polynomials and their basic operations as well as the process of factoring polynomials, quadratic expressions, and special products. Also considered is probability through compound events. Quadratic Equations and Functions - introduces students to quadratic equations and various methods of solving them. Also considered is the discriminant and linear, exponential, and quadratic models. Radicals and Geometry Connections; Data Analysis - covers the concept of the radical and its uses in geometry, including the Distance and Midpoint Formula and Pythagoreanâ€™s Theorem. Also considered are methods of analyzing data with charts and graphs. Rational Equations and Functions; Statistics - covers rational functions and the operations of rational expressions. Students learn to graph rational functions, divide polynomials, and analyze surveys and samples.
