MAT 105 - College Algebra

3 Cr. Hrs.
Common Learning Outcomes
05. [CT] Critical thinking skills: inquiry, analysis and creative problem-solving
08. [QL] Quantitative literacy

Math 105 is a basic algebra course beginning with a review of the real number system and basic algebraic properties. It is intended for students who need a terminal course in college algebra and for those who wish to take a more advanced mathematics course but do not have sufficient algebra skills. Topics include: sets; real numbers; operations; order; inequalities; polynomial factoring; functions; graphs; exponents; first and second degree equations; variation; and systems of equations.

Prerequisite(s): Score of 450+ on Pre-March 2016 Math SAT, 490+ on new Math SAT, or 16+ on Math ACT. Students not meeting these prerequisites must enroll in MAT 120  - Mathematics Foundations Lab - when they register for MAT 105 or pass a placement test set by the department.
*Students who must take MAT 140 , Analytic Geometry and Calculus 1, may take Math 105 and MAT 107  concurrently. A student with a “C” or better in a math course numbered 140 or higher may not subsequently receive credit for a math course numbered less than 140, unless, due to the student’s major or change of major, the course is a math requirement.
