## PREREQUISITES

The prerequisite for Math 64 is completion of Math 30 with a grade of “C” or better,
or a qualifying score on the Math Competency Exam (MCE).

## COURSE DESCRIPTION

This algebra course covers radicals, exponents, rational expressions, concepts of relations and functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, linear and quadratic functions, and the solutions of equations from these topics.

## STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES

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

1) Students will be able to solve a variety of equations and determine the validity of solutions.
2) Students will be able to utilize function notation, determine the domain and range, perform the     algebra of functions and compose functions.
3) Students will be able to analyze and graph linear and quadratic functions.

## PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES

At the end of this course you should be able to…

1) Classify equations by type (linear, quadratic, rational, radical, exponential, or logarithmic) and     solve by applying the appropriate technique
2) Simplify expressions involving radicals, algebraic fractions, exponents, logarithms, and complex      numbers
3) Graph linear and quadratic functions, identify intercepts, and find the vertex of a parabola
4) Analyze verbal problems, model with appropriate functions, substitute the known values, and     solve the resulting equations
5) Identify relations that are functions and determine the domain of a given relation or function.
