Various, distance learning format.
Varies (self-study; self-paced).
Instructional delivery format:
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: use mathematical notations and expressions to represent variables and write algebraic expressions and equations; solve algebraic equations, including linear, quadratic, polynomials, roots, and rational functions; graph a mathematical function and apply basic transformations to the graph and corresponding equation; work with and manipulate exponential and logarithmic expressions; solve systems of linear and basic nonlinear equations and find solution sets of systems for inequalities; recognize equations that represent conic sections such as circles, ellipses, hyperbolas, and parabolas from mathematic equations and their graphic representations.
This self-study course is designed to provide students with the basic principles of algebra, including mathematical expressions such as polynomials, exponentials, and logarithms and their manipulations. The course also covers functions, graphs, inequalities, linear equations and quadratic equations and their solutions through algebra and graphing.
In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Algebra or Mathematics (6/13) (8/18 revalidation).
