This is a computer based, individualized curriculum course to build the fundamentals of mathematics. A the conclusion of the course, students will retake Accuplacer and continue with their studies based on this new placement. This course is graded Pass/Fail.

*formerly MAT 099 Introductory Algebra*

*Prerequisite: A satisfactory score on the ACCUPLACER
placement exam. *

This course covers the basic concepts of
algebra, including simplifing variable expressions, methods of
solving equations, inequalities and systems of equations, an
introduction to functions, and graphing and writing linear equations
and functions. Students will also study exponential expressions and
operations with polynomials. There will be an emphasis on
applications thoughout.
