  • Exponentials and logarithms (basic notions, equations and inequalities)
  • Elementary algebra (operations with monomials, polynomials and special products, first-degree and second-degree equations and inequalities, rational equations and inequalities, systems of equations and inequalities)
  • Coordinate geometry (Cartesian coordinates; distance formula; the midpoint of a line segment; equations and basic properties of straight line, parabola and circle; parallel and perpendicular lines, condition to ensure that a given point belongs to a curve)
