MATH 099 · Intermediate Algebra   3 Credits

This course is a study of intermediate-level algebra, taken in preparation for college algebra. Topics include real numbers, algebraic expressions, linear equations and inequalities, linear functions and their graphs, systems of equations in two and three variables, exponents and radicals, polynomial functions and factoring, rational expressions and equations, quadratic equations, and complex numbers.

Course carries no degree credit. Students must earn a grade of C- or better in order to fulfill a prerequisite.

MATH 105 · Survey of College Mathematics   3 Credits

MATH 105 is designed for the non-science major. Key areas of focus include financial literacy, numerically-based decision making, growth, scale, consumer applications, probability, and numerical applications. The course applies basic college-level mathematics to real-life problems.

Prerequisite: MATH 099 with a grade of C- or better, or SAT 540/ACT 23 math score.

MATH 125 · College Algebra   3 Credits

This course is primarily a study of functions (linear, quadratic, polynomial, inverse, exponential, and logarithmic) and their graphs. Additional topics include solving equations and inequalities, matrices, and sequences and series.

Prerequisite: MATH 099 with a grade of C- or better, or SAT 540/ACT 23 math score.
