MTH 1108 - College Algebra Stretch, Part I

Credits: 4

Prerequisite(s): An approved score on the mathematics pre-assessment placement test

Description: This course is the first half of a two-semester sequence (consisting of MTH 1108 followed by MTH 1109); the two-semester course is equivalent to MTH 1110 (College Algebra) and is a prerequisite for MTH 1120 and the calculus sequence. The topics covered in MTH 1108 include equations and inequalities, the function notation and a detailed study of linear and quadratic functions and their properties; in addition, students enrolled in MTH 1108 review basic algebraic skills, such as factoring methods, properties for rational and root expressions, and geometrical formulas.

Note: All sections will integrate the use of a graphing calculator into the course. A specific calculator will be required. A student cannot receive credit for both MTH 1110 and MTH 1108. Students must receive a “C” or better to earn elective credit.
