What is an LP?
How to formulate an LP.
How to plot a feasible region (of form Ax <= b) in 2D or 3D
Understand that linear objective function has a gradient perpendicular to the level curves
How to solve an LP graphically
Interpret critical resources as ones associated with binding constraints
Understand sensitivity of solution to changes in objective function
Understand why there may be infinite solutions
Understand that if a solution exists, then there is an optimal corner point solution
Understand relationship between binding constraints and corner points.
