Instructional delivery format: 
Online/distance learning
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: use mathematical notations and expressions to represent variables, and write algebraic expressions and equations; solve algebraic equations, including equations that are linear, quadratic, involve polynomials, roots, and rational functions; graph a mathematical function and apply basic transformations to the graph and to transform the equation correspondingly; work with and manipulate exponential and logarithmic expressions; solve systems of linear and basic nonlinear equations, and find the solution sets of systems of inequalities; recognize equations that represent conic sections such as circles, ellipses, hyperbolas, and parabolas from mathematic equations and their graphs representations.

Instruction: 

This course introduces students to the basic principles of algebra. These principles include mathematical expressions such as polynomials, exponentials, and logarithms, and their manipulations. Major topics include: functions and graphs, equations such as inequalities, linear and quadratic equations and their solutions through algebra, graphing of more complex equations such as parabolas, hyperbolas and circles. Evaluation criteria include: required readings; practice assignments; class participation; and exams.

Credit recommendation: 

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Mathematics or Business (3/18).
