This course is designed to provide the STEM student with basic algebraic concepts needed to continue onto MTH131. Topics include: real numbers, complex numbers, solutions of inequalities and equations, coordinate systems, functions, polynomials, rational functions, graphing and transformations of functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and systems of equations. While there may be overlap with topics from College Algebra, this course develops these topics in a rigorous manner and should not be considered equivalent to Algebra for Business and Social Science (MTH109).
Note: Students wishing to take Calculus for Business and Social Science (MTH211) should NOT register for this course. This course does not fulfill the mathematics requirement in some Associate degree programs. Please check with your counselor.
Prereq: C or better in MTH072 and MTH075; or placement by assessment.
Recommended Coreq: MTH130.
