A basic algebra course designed to prepare students for MTH 160 (Statistics I.) It is intended for students who need MTH 160 as the terminal mathematics course in their program, but place at Mathematics Level 4, 5, or 6. It is not for students who also plan to MTH 165 or higher. Topics include, but are not limited to, arithmetic operations on real numbers, solving linear equations and inequalities, simplifying expressions containing integer exponents, simplifying square roots and finding decimal approximations, graphing linear equations, an introduction to function notation, and appropriate applications of these topics. The traditional classroom lecture format is replaced with an individualize, actively engaged approach to learning mathematics using technology. Students work through assignments within content modules at a guided self-pace, allowing them to spend less time on material they may already know and ore time on material they have yet to master. Three class hours per week; three fee hours; three imputed credits; no earned credits.
MCC level 4 Mathematics Placement or higher or TRS 094 with a grade of C or better.
