College Algebra

College Algebra (MTH 152)

Online course begins Jan 22
3 college credits

This course is designed to present advanced algebra in order to prepare students for precalculus. Topics include elementary functions, and their graphs, basic manipulations of functions, and the graphical impact of changes to a function, linear and quadratic functions, polynomial functions, rational functions, solving equations, and applications of topics cited. Prerequisite: Intermediate Algebra Competency. Three lecture hours per week.

Course Outcomes

Students who complete this course successfully will:

  1. Demonstrate study skills and habits necessary to succeed in a college math class.
  2. Find the domain and range of a function graphically and, where appropriate, algebraically.
  3. Determine if a function is even, odd, or neither graphically based on symmetry and algebraically.
  4. Identify relations and functions, use the vertical line test to determine if a relation represents a function.
  5. Graph elementary functions, piece-wise defined functions, and transformations (translation, stretch/shrink, reflection) of basic functions.
  6. Analyze and graph different types of functions including linear function, quadratic function, polynomial functions, and rational functions.
  7. Solve real world problems modeled by linear, quadratic, and polynomial functions.
