This is a basic, first-level algebra course. The topics covered are: introduction to the sets of natural numbers, integers, rational and real numbers, and their representation; solution of linear equations in one and two variables; quadratic equations; graphing lines and parabolas; and applications of algebra. MATH 095 is intended for students who have not successfully completed Elementary Algebra previously. It is not considered a “college-level” course. The course carries three credits toward computation of full-time college attendance, but it carries no credit toward degree requirements for any Certificate, A.A.S., A.A., A.S., B.B.A., or B.T. program.

  1. Students will demonstrate the ability to interpret and draw inferences from mathematical models such as formulas, graphs.
  2. Students will demonstrate the ability to represent mathematical information symbolically, visually, numerically and verbally.
  3. Students will demonstrate the ability to employ quantitative methods such as, arithmetic and algebra to solve problems.
  4. Students will demonstrate the ability to estimate and check mathematical results for reasonableness.
  5. Students will demonstrate the ability to recognize the limits of mathematical methods.
