MATH 1111 - College Algebra

(3) Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Appropriate MPI or Accuplacer scores of 40 and above on the ACCUPLACER Algebra Test
This course provides an in-depth study of the properties of algebraic, exponential and logarithmic functions as needed for calculus. Emphasis is on using algebraic and graphical techniques for solving problems involving linear, quadratic, piece-wise defined, rational, polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Upon completion of this course a 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, exponential and logarithmic); 3. Demonstrate mathematical creativity and critical thinking by applying problem-solving strategies to solve multiple-step problems involving polynomial, exponential and logarithmic equations and inequalities and systems of linear equations; 4. Manipulate mathematical information and concepts to solve problems using multiple representations of polynomial, exponential and logarithmic functions; 5. Use mathematical language appropriately; 6. Use appropriate technology in the evaluation, analysis and synthesis of information in problem-solving situations.
