Math - Developmental (MTHD)
MTHD 103. BASIC ALGEBRA/COLLEGE STUDENTS. 5 Credits.
Notes: this course is a substitution for the previous MATH 103 and 103A&B; graded Pass/No Credit.; does not count toward the 180 credit requirement.
Topics include algebraic properties of number systems, the algebra of polynomials, and algebraic, graphical and numerical solutions to equations of the first and second degree (as well as absolute value equations and literal equations).
MTHD 104. INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA/COLLEGE STUDENTS. 5 Credits.
Notes: this course is a substitution for the previous MATH 104 and 104A&B; does not count toward the 180 credit requirement.
Pre-requisites: approved score in MTHD 103 or mathematics placement test or ≥2.0 in approved transfer course.
Topics are fundamentals of algebra, including rational equations; and radical, quadratic and exponential functions and equations.
MTHD 106. ALGEBRA REASONING. 5 Credits.
Notes: intended for students who are planning to use MATH 107 to complete the university proficiency in mathematics; does not count toward the 180 credit requirement.
Pre-requisites: approved score in MTHD 103 or placement test score equivalent to placement into MTHD 104.
Satisfies: completion of this course with a grade ≥2.0 satisfies pre university basic skill.
This course leads to mastery of basic algebraic skills involving linear models, systems of equations, proportional reasoning, and exponential growth. Students develop reasoning skills in the areas or problem solving, unit conversion, graphical interpretation, counting strategies and interpreting slopes.
MTHD 196. EXPERIMENTAL COURSE. 1-5 Credits.
