MTH-1120 - College Algebra* (M) (3)

Prerequisite: MTH-0994  or appropriate score on the Math Placement Test.  
Designed to provide students with a solid foundation in algebra this course is intended primarily for students with scientific or technical majors, and with MTH-1130  , prepares students for the study of calculus. Topics include real and complex numbers, intervals, algebraic, exponential and logarithmic functions, graphing and solving various types of equations involving second and higher order terms, radicals, and absolute value. Graphical interpretations are emphasized throughout the course. Some topics are supported by the use of computer software and the use of graphing calculators.  This course satisfies the General Education Mathematics requirement.

List Course Outcomes (consistent for all sections)
CO1 - Classify functions and identify characteristics such as the form of the equation, domain, intercepts, zeros and asymptotes in order to graph them and to solve equations.

CO2 - Graph, both manually and with a graphing calculator, a variety of functions in order to analyze the graphs and identify characteristics such as domain and range.

CO3 - Solve algebraic, logarithmic, exponential and systems of equations in order to obtain solutions both algebraically and graphically.

CO4 - Apply transformations in order to graph and analyze various functions.

CO5 - Identify characteristics of a polynomial function including real and complex zeros, local maxima and minima and end behavior to analyze and graph these functions.
