## PREREQUISITES

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).

## COURSE DESCRIPTION

Designed to prepare students for intermediate algebra, this course teaches simplifying algebraic expressions involving polynomials and rational terms; factoring; solving linear equations; solving quadratic and rational equations using factoring; analyzing graphs of linear equations; and solving applied problems.

## STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOME

Upon successful completion of Math 30, the student
should be able to:

1. For a given set of problems the student will demonstrate quantitative reasoning by developing a problem-solving strategy, performing appropriate analysis and computation, and critically assessing the meaning of the conclusion or outcome.

## COURSE OBJECTIVES

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.
