This course provides an extensive review of basic arithmetic and algebra concepts. Topics covered include operations with whole numbers, fractions, and decimals; percent; properties of real numbers; solving linear equations and inequalities; interpreting and solving application problems; graphing linear equations and inequalities; exponents, scientific notation; polynomials, factoring; and measurement in both the U.S. customary and the metric systems. *Credits do not apply to degree requirements.
 

MATH1280L Topics in Applied College Math CL4 L0 CR4

This course is designed to expose the student to a wide range of general mathematics. Problem solving and critical thinking skills, along with the use of technology, will be emphasized and reinforced throughout the course as the student becomes actively involved solving applied problems. Topics to be covered include number theory and systems, functions and modeling, finance, geometry and measurement, probability and statistics, and selected subtopics related to the student's major field of study.
(Prerequisite: Successful completion of MATH0610L or LMAT0610, or competence as demonstrated on math placement exam.)

MATH1310L Boolean Algebra CL1 L0 CR1

This course relates principles of Boolean Algebra directly to elementary circuit analysis. It includes an examination of the decimal, octal, binary, and hexadecimal number systems. The use of NOT, AND, OR, XOR, NAND, and NOR in logic statements, as well as in simple circuit analysis, is covered.
(Prerequisite: Successful completion of MATH0610L or LMAT0610, or competence as demonstrated on math placement exam.)

MATH1370L Technical algebra and Geometry CL4 L0 CR4

This course is intended for technical students and introduces concepts from algebra, geometry, and trigonometry that will facilitate the solution of applied problems which could be encountered in technical fields. Topics include measurement, absolute and relative error, linear equations, roots, plane and solid geometric figures and their areas/volumes, finding missing dimensions of plane and solid figures, inscribed and circumscribed angles, radian measure, right triangle trigonometry, and an introduction to personal finance. A grade of C or better must be achieved in this class in order to use it as a prerequisite for a subsequent class.
