MAT 321/322 ALGEBRA 1
(Yearly 1 Credit) (9, 10)
Using variables or letters to represent numbers, Algebra is generalized arithmetic. Emphasis is placed on solving equations and inequalities, polynomials, factoring, linear equations in two variables, rational expressions, and radicals. Algebra provides the background for the future study of more complex mathematics. Completion of this course provides the student with the algebraic skills necessary to study Geometry or Honors Geometry.
MAT 641/642 FUNDAMENTAL ALGEBRA 2
(Yearly 1 Credit) (10, 11, 12) (Base Level)
Prerequisite: “D” or higher in Geometry; or “C” or higher in Elementary Geometry
Elementary Algebra 2 is a course designed for anyone who has experienced difficulty in Geometry or Algebra. Emphasis in this class is placed upon expanding the algebraic concepts taught in Algebra. This course is not designed for students who intend to enroll in Pre-Calculus or Finite Math/Probability and Statistics. Successful completion of this course provides the student with the algebraic skills necessary to study College Algebra. This course is not designed for students who plan to attend a four year university immediately after graduation.
