Description of Mathematics
MATH 070
INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA
4 Units or 1 Unit each/Prerequisite: MATH 050 with a grade of “C” or better
or appropriate assessment.
Advisory: ENGL 035 or ESL 198 or appropriate assessment and READ 023
or appropriate assessment.
Transfers to: CSU if taken prior to the Fall Semester, 1988.
This course is designed for students who have completed an elementary
algebra course and need to complete an additional course in algebra before
proceeding to a college level transferable course. This course is a study of
linear and quadratic equations and inequalities, system of linear equations,
polynomials , exponents and radicals, relations and functions, graphs of
functions, exponential and logarithmic expressions and their applications.
Students may enroll in Math 070 in a lecture section for four units of credit
or in individual one-unit modules: Math 070A, 070B, 070C, and 070D in the
Math and Science Center (MSC) or online. Instruction in the MSC is given
on an independent tutorial, open-entry basis which must be completed
sequentially in the MSC over a maximum period of 24 months.

MATH 070 ON LINE COURSES
8-WEEK SESSION (JUNE 22 – AUGUST 14, 2009)
ONLINE COURSE ACCESS: ONLINE.RIOHONDO.EDU
This course is a modularized version of Math 070, which allows greater
flexibility for the student to complete the course on-line. The majority of
coursework is completed on-line, with one proctored written exam required
for each module. It is recommended that you sign up for only one module
at a time (each 1 unit).
Contact Jan LaTurno prior to registration for
important information on software/hardware requirements which exceed
Virtual College specifications. Also contact the instructor if you wish to start
earlier than June 22.

This course is designed for students majoring in business, social sciences,
and life sciences. This course provides an overview of descriptive
and inferential statistics. The students learn to read, interpret and present
data in a well organized way. This includes frequency distributions , graphs,
measures of central tendency and variability, correlation and linear regression.
While discussing inferential statistics, the students learn to make
generalizations about populations. This includes probability, sampling
techniques, confidence intervals, and hypothesis tests.
