MTH 1112 - College Algebra Through Modeling

Credits: 4

Prerequisite(s): An intermediate algebra course or one and one half years of secondary school algebra or equivalent and an appropriate score on the mathematics preassessment placement test.

Description: This course places a greater emphasis on applications and data analysis than MTH 1110, College Algebra. The topics covered include: deriving functions to model situations; linear, exponential and logarithmic, power, quadratic functions and their properties and graphs; exponents and logarithms; data analysis and regression; rates of change; and linear systems and equations. Basic algebraic skills are essential as a prerequisite to this course. All sections will integrate the use of a graphing calculator into the course. A specific calculator will be required.

Note: Only one of MTH 1110 and MTH 1112 will count toward graduation.
