Course Descriptions

MATH 090                                  5 credits
Basic Mathematics

Covers basic operations of adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing; powers and roots with whole, fractional, and decimal numbers. Introduces adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing with signed numbers. Covers ratios/proportions and percents. For students who need a firm foundation in math before pursuing academic objectives and/or higher level math. Calculators not allowed. Prerequisites: appropriate ABE or placement score.

MATH 093                                  5 credits

The course is designed for students transitioning between arithmetic and algebra. Students will review arithmetic with real numbers, work with expressions containing variables, solve linear equations, graph linear equations in two dimensions, calculate slopes and intercepts for lines, and use unit analysis to solve applications. This course prepares students for MATH 098. Prerequisites: "C" or better in MATH 090 or appropriate placement score.

MATH 098                                  5 credits
Elementary Algebra

Topics include solving linear, quadratic (by factoring) and rational equations; solving a linear system of equations; manipulating polynomials (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing); and using exponent properties to simplify expressions. Students will also graph linear equations in two variables, calculate slopes, and find linear functions. Prerequisites: "C" or better in MATH 093 or appropriate placement recommendation.

MATH 099                                  5 credits
Intermediate Algebra

Topics include: solving quadratic, absolute value, rational, radical, exponential and logarithmic equations; graphing shifted quadratic and absolute value functions; simplifying radical expressions, solving systems of linear inequalities; evaluating logarithms; finding the vertex of a quadratic function. Prerequisites: a "C" or better in MATH 098 or appropriate placement recommendation.
