MATH 120A - Algebraic Methods: College Algebra (GE3)
MATH 120 is offered as MATH 120A - Algebraic Methods: College Algebra or MATH 120B Algebraic Methods: Finite Math (GE3) .
Using algebraic techniques, students develop analytical reasoning skills to construct mathematical models, solve problems and interpret results.
In MATH 120A, students engage in a more in-depth development and extension of the algebraic concepts and method introduced in MATH 103 . Topics include algebraic expressions, equations and inequalities; functions, their transformations and graphs; polynomials and rational functions; rational and complex zeros of polynomials, systems of equations and inequalities; applications of matrices.
Prerequisite: MATH 103 or satisfactory placement.
