This course combines the Basic Mathematics course
(MAT010) with the first part of the Algebra I
course (MAT013A).
Catalogue Course Description for MAT009
This course focuses on computational skills and problem solving. Topics
include addition,
subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers, fractions and
decimals , ratio and
proportion, percent, measurement, areas and perimeters of geometric figures, and
basic
descriptive statistics. Applications are included as well.
Note: A minimum grade of "C" is required for movement from
one remedial course to another and
for completion of the remedial requirements to qualify for credit courses.
Catalogue Course Description for MAT013A
This course is the first half of a twosemester course in algebra designed
to introduce and
develop elementary algebra concepts. Topics include: properties of real numbers ,
operations
on real numbers, simplifying and evaluating algebraic expressions, solving
linear equations ,
solving literal equations, verbal problems, and polynomials . Students must
complete this course
and MAT013B to fulfill the MAT013 requirement.
Note: A minimum grade of "C" is required for movement from
one remedial course to another and
for completion of the remedial requirements to qualify for credit courses.
