Below each course description is a link to a sample syllabus and assignment sheet for each course. The topics covered and use of technology is consistent across all sections of each course.
MTH 0900- Pre-Algebra
This course is designed for those students who would like a review of arithmetic before beginning the Basic Algebra course or for those who would like to improve their arithmetic skills. Topics to be studied include numeration, whole numbers, fractions, decimal numerals, percents, exponents, ratio and proportion. A problem based approach will be used in a traditional classroom.
MTH 0900 Syllabus and assignment sheet (SAMPLE)
This course is the first course in a 2 semester developmental algebra sequence. Topics of study include: numbers of arithmetic, real numbers, order of operations, solving linear equations and inequalities in one variable, graphing linear equations and inequalities in 2 variables, solving systems of equations in 2 variables and 3 variables, solving application problems in 1 and 2 variables, polynomials, and rules of exponents. Mathematical study skills will be studied and applied throughout the course. This course is offered in a combined lecture/computer lab or in the Math Learning Center in an individualized lab/computer lab format. The grade in this course is not computed in G. P. A. nor applicable to any degree or certificate program for graduation. This course is a prerequisite for Mth 0907.
This is the second course in a 2 semester developmental algebra sequence. Topics to be studied include: algebraic operations, functions, polynomials, factoring, rational expressions, exponents and radicals, and quadratic functions. This course is offered in combined lecture/computer lab format or the Math Learning Center in an individualized lab/computer lab format. The grade in this course is not computed in G. P. A. nor applicable to any degree or certificate program for graduation. This course is a prerequisite for Mth 0908 and transfer level math courses.
This is the beginning course in geometry. Topics to be studied include: algebraic and geometric sets, angles, triangles, surface area and volumes of selected solids, quadrilaterals, circles, congruence, similarity, basic construction and area. Emphasis is on applying knowledge of geometry relations to solve problems rather than on rigorous development of geometric relations. An individualized study approach is used. Completion of this course satisfies the geometry prerequisite for any other course.
Technical Mathematics I
This is the first course in technical mathematics. It includes topics in arithmetic, the metric system, selected topics in basic algebra, practical geometry and trigonometry. Emphasis is on the use of mathematics to solve typical job problems. An individualize study approach is used.
Technical Mathematics II
This is the second course in the technical math sequence. Topics include: polynomials, equations with applications, graphing linear equations, systems of equations, factoring and quadratic equations. An individualized study approach is used.
