STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES:

Upon successful completion of Math 830, the student should be able to:

(1) Students will be able to make use of factoring techniques to perform algebraic computations with rational algebraic expressions, simplifying results.
(2) Students will be able to translate applied problems involving geometry into computational problems involving a variable and solve.
(3) Students will be able to verify solutions to applied problems.

COURSE DESCRIPTION AND SCOPE:

Designed to prepare students for Intermediate Algebra. Elementary Algebra
teaches simplifying algebraic expressions involving polynomials and rational terms; factoring; solving linear equations; solving quadratic equations using factoring; analyzing graphs of linear equations; and solving applied problems. This course will also include an introduction to algebraic operations with rational expressions.

PREREQUISITE:

The prerequisite for Math 830 is completion of Math 820 with a grade of “C” or better, or a qualifying score on the Math Competency Exam (MCE).
