(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)

  • MATH 47 with a minimum grade of 2.0.

Course Competencies

Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • Apply properties of arithmetic and algebra to simplify and evaluate algebraic expressions.
  • Express the sums, differences, products and quotients of polynomials in simplest form.
  • Express the sums, differences, products and quotients of rational expressions in simplest form.
  • Solve linear equations in one variable.
  • Solve linear inequalities in one variable.
  • Factor polynomials.
  • Solve quadratic equations by factoring.
  • Solve rational equations.
  • Solve literal equations for a specified variable.
  • Solve applications using linear equations in one variable, quadratic equations or rational equations.
  • Graph linear equations in two variables using a table of values, x and y intercepts, or slope/y-intercept.
  • Write a linear equation in two variables using slope-intercept form, point-slope form, or standard form.
  • Explore the function concept using the vertical line test, determining the domain and range from a graph, or by evaluating functions.
