MATH 0097 is an introductory algebra course designed for students with some

mathematical background who need additional algebraic skills. Topics include

fractions, decimals, signed numbers, linear equations, systems of equations in

two variables, exponents, inequalities, polynomials, factoring, and graphing linear

equations. Topics will be supported by appropriate technology. Exit requirement:

A grade of "C" or better in the course.

Placement: A score below 37 on the COMPASS Algebra Test.

Offered: All semesters.

MATH 0099 is a continuation of MATH 0097. Topics include linear equations

and inequalities, factoring, polynomials, exponents, roots and radicals, rational

expressions, complex numbers, quadratic equations, and basic elements of

geometry. Topics will be supported by appropriate technology. Exit

Requirement: A grade of "C" or better in the course and a Compass Algebra

Test score of 37 or above.

Placement: Successful completion of MATH 0097.

Offered: All semesters.

This course is an alternative in Area A of the Core Curriculum and is not intended

to supply sufficient algebraic background for students who intend to take

Precalculus, trigonometry, or the calculus sequence for mathematics and science

majors. This course places quantitative skills and reasoning in the context of

experiences that students will be likely to encounter. It emphasizes processing

information in context from a variety of representations, understanding of both

the information and the processing, and understanding which conclusions can be

reasonably determined. A graphing calculator is required. MATH 1001 is a math

course for non-science majors and may be used as a prerequisite to MATH 2205

and/or MATH 1145. Students receiving credit for MATH 1001 cannot receive

credit for MATH 1111.

Prerequisites: MATH 0099 or satisfactory score on math placement test.

Offered: Every Semester.

(3-0-3)

This course is a functional approach to algebra that incorporates the use of

applied technology. Emphasis will be placed on the study of functions and their

graphs, inequalities, and linear, quadratic, piece-wise defined, rational,

polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Appropriate applications will

be included. A graphing calculator is required. Students receiving credit for

MATH 1111 cannot receive credit for MATH 1001.

Prerequisite: MATH 0099 or satisfactory score on math placement test.

Offered: All semesters.
