College Algebra (MATH 1110)

Total Credits: 4
Lecture Credits: 4

Description: In this course you will learn to operate on, transform and apply functions (polynomial, rational, root, logarithmic, exponential), and their graphs. To help facilitate this goal you will also learn about inequalities; complex numbers; the fundamental theorem of algebra; algebraic modeling; and solving systems of linear equations with matrices.

Topical Outline:
1. Linear/Quadratic Equations & Inequalities
2. Domain, Range, Even/Odd and Inverse Functions
3. Graphs of Polynomial, Rational, Logarithmic & exponential Functions
4. Matrices & Determinants
5. Linear & Non-linear system of equations
6. Real, rational. irrational & cojugate roots

Learning Outcomes:
1. Demonstrate knowledge of functions, relation and graphs
2. Solve polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions
3. Solve system of linear equations
4. Interpret mathematical models such as formulas, graphs and tables
5. Translate real world problems into mathematical form and solve

Prerequisites:  Placement into MATH 1110 or completion of MATH 0075 or MATH 0080 or MATH 0088. It is strongly recommended that students have completed MATH 0080 or MATH 0088 with a grade of "C" (2.0) or higher.
