ACFN 085S - Developmental Mathematics (1)

This is a seminar in developmental mathematics. Students will learn how to perform operations on real numbers, the implications of exponents and the order of operations, and how to evaluate algebraic expressions.  The concepts of percents and their applications, introductory geometry, statistics, and problem solving skills will all be incorporated.  Students will solve equations in one variable, solve literal equations for a variable, and evaluate/graph inequalities.  Students will translate and solve algebraic equations, and learn the skills required to solve application problems in one and two variables. Students will interpret and graph linear equations as well as solving and analyzing systems of equations. Students will perform operations on polynomials, rational and radical expressions.  Students will use various methods to factor polynomials.  Students will solve polynomial, rational and radical equations, and apply these skills to solving application problems.  The concept of functions will be introduced as well as their operations.  Linear inequalities will be revisited with interval notation and applications.
