MATH 093 - Intermediate Algebra for Liberal Arts
Development of algebraic and problem-solving skills and concepts intended to prepare students for a mathematics foundation course. Topics include linear, quadratic, and exponential equations, functions and their applications, modeling and data analysis. This course does not satisfy the prerequisite for MATH 130 , MATH 150 , or MATH 165 . Not intended for students who have a grade of C or better in MATH 096 /MATH 096C , or their equivalent. PREREQUISITE(S): A grade of C or better in MATH 080 , or appropriate score on the mathematics assessment test; or consent of department. Assessment Level(s): AELW 940 / ELAI 990 , READ 120 , or AELR 930 / ELAR 980 . Three hours each week. Formerly MA 097.
3 semester hours
THREE EQUIVALENT CREDIT HOURS. NOT APPLICABLE TO A DEGREE OR CERTIFICATE. MAY NOT BE USED TO SATISFY DEGREE REQUIREMENTS. NOT INCLUDED IN GPA CALCULATION.
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:
- Identify whether a function is linear, quadratic, or exponential when it is defined verbally, symbolically, graphically or in tabular form.
- Recognize specific symbolic and graphical characteristics of linear, quadratic, and exponential functions.
- Interpret, in context, the key features of linear, quadratic, and exponential functions.
- Use real world data to develop the appropriate linear, quadratic, or exponential function model.
- Use linear, quadratic, and exponential models to evaluate and make predictions.
- Use numerical, verbal, algebraic or graphical strategies for outcomes #3, #5 listed above.
- Solve linear, quadratic, and exponential equations by applying algebraic, numerical, and/or graphing techniques.
- Translate and solve linear, quadratic, and exponential application problems.
