Algebra for Business and Social Science (MTH109)

3.0 Semester Hours

This course is designed to provide the Business, Nursing, Education, or other non-STEM student with basic algebraic concepts necessary to continue in non-STEM related mathematics courses. Topics include: real numbers, solutions of inequalities and equations, coordinate systems, functions, polynomials, rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, graphing and transformations of functions, and systems of equations. While there may be overlap with topics from Precalculus I, this course develops these topics in a non-rigorous manner and does not meet the prerequisite requirement for MTH131 Calculus With Analytic Geometry I.

Prereq: C or better in MTH072 and MTh075; or placement determined by assessment.

Note: Students wishing to take Calculus With Analytic Geometry I (MTH131) should NOT register for this course. This course does not fulfill the mathematics requirement in some Associate degree programs. Please check with your counselor.
