## MTH 096 - Algebra for Statistics

No Credit

A basic algebra course designed to prepare students for MTH 160 (Statistics I) or MTH 162 (Statistics for the Social Sciences) at MCC. It is only for students who need MTH 160, MTH 161 or MTH 162 as the terminal mathematics course in their program and place at Mathematics Level 4, 5, or 6. It is not for students who need to take MTH 104 or 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.

MCC level 4 mathematics placement or higher or TRS 094 with a grade of C or better.
