# MATH 099Intermediate Algebra• 5 Cr.

## Description:

Expands algebra skills through an axiomatic approach. Students work with mathematical systems, solution of equations, inequalities, functions, exponents and logarithms, and coordinate systems. This course is similar to second-year high-school algebra. Prerequisite: Placement by assessment, or MATH 098 with a C or better.

## Outcomes:

After completing this class, students should be able to:

• Evaluate expressions using function notation
• Represent functions using formulas, tables and graphs
• Write the equation of a line from data
• Identify parallel and perpendicular lines
• Solve linear systems in two variables using graphing and algebraic methods
• Set up and solve application problems using linear systems
• Solve quadratic equations by factoring, completing the square and the quadratic formula
• Determine the number of solutions to a quadratic equation using the discriminant
• Graph a quadratic function and determine itâ€™s vertex and intercepts
• Set up and solve quadratic application problems
• Add, subtract, multiply, divide and factor polynomials
• Add, subtract, multiply and divide rational expressions (algebraic fractions)
• Solve rational equations
• Set up and solve application problems using inverse variation, direct variation and proportions
• Convert from radical notation to rational exponent notation and from exponent notation to radical notation
• Convert from logarithmic form to exponential form; and from exponential form to logarithmic form
• Solve exponential and logarithmic equations
• Graph exponential and logarithmic functions
• Solve exponential and logarithmic application problems
