The prerequisite for Math 30 is completion of Math
20 with a grade of “C” or better,
or a qualifying score on the Math Competency Exam (MCE).
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.
Upon successful completion of Math 30:
Students will be able to make use of factoring techniques, solve quadratic equations by factoring, and make use of factoring to simplify rational expressions.
Students will be able to translate English phrases into algebraic expressions and equations, and solve applied problems.
Students will be able to perform operations related to linear equations in two variables, solve systems of linear equations, and solve applications which can be modeled using systems of linear equations.
At the end of this course you should be able to…
(1) evaluate and simplify algebraic expressions using the rules of exponents,
order of operations, combining like terms, and the distributive property
(2) add, subtract, multiply and divide using either monomials or polynomials;
(3) solve a linear equation or inequality and check the solution;
(4) analyze verbal problems, model with appropriate equations, substitute the
known values, solve the resulting equations, and interpret the result in the
context of the problem;
(5) factor polynomials;
(6) simplify, multiply and divide rational expressions;
(7) graph first degree equations in two variables;
(8) write an equation for a
given line, identify the slope of a line; and
(9) solve quadratic equations by factoring.
