MAT-121 College Algebra

This course builds upon the foundations of basic/intermediate algebra to further develop students' mathematical knowledge and professional skill set. Students in a wide range of disciplines and careers build real-world technical skills through the use of technology, data, and application modeling. This course also emphasizes critical thinking, logic, problem solving, and analytical skills. Topics include a review of pre-algebraic concepts, linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, functions (linear, quadratic, polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic), real-world applications using modeling and applying regression analysis to data.

Advisory: It is advisable to have knowledge in a course equivalent to MAT-115: Intermediate Algebra with a grade of C or better to succeed in this course. Students are responsible for ensuring that they have the required knowledge. Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Associate in Science in Business Administration students are recommended to take MAT-119: Quantitative Business Analysis or MAT-121: College Algebra.
