MATH 0989 - Foundations for College Algebra

(4*) Credit Hours
A study of essential mathematical concepts required for success in MATH 1111 : College Algebra. Topics include properties of numbers, linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, graphs, polynomials and roots. After completing this course, the student will be able to: 1. Express and analyze relationships using functions in multiple ways (graphical, numerical, symbolic and verbal). 2. Model situations using appropriate functions (linear, quadratic, higher-degree polynomial). 3. Manipulate mathematical information, concepts, and thoughts to solve problems using multiple representations of polynomial, radical and rational functions. 4. Demonstrate mathematical creativity and critical thinking by applying problem-solving strategies to solve multiple-step problems involving polynomial equations and inequalities and systems of linear equations. 5. Use appropriate technology in the evaluation, analysis, and synthesis of information in problem-solving situations. 6. Use mathematical language appropriately. 7. Learn appropriate study skills to enhance the possibilities of future success in mathematics.
