# LEARNING OUTCOMES

# A student who passes this course will be able to demonstrate criticalthinking with respect to quadratic, rational, and radical expressions andequations. The student will demonstratethe ability to factor selected polynomials, simplify rational and radicalexpressions, and perform complex number arithmetic. Further, the student will be able to solveselected radical equations, quadratic equations and inequalities and rationalequations and inequalities.

# PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES

Thestudent will identify prime factors and common factors, determine the greatestcommon factor of two or more terms, and factor the greatest common factor fromthe terms of a polynomial.

Thestudent will factor polynomials containing four terms by grouping and usingcommon factors, and will factor selected trinomials with integer coefficientsof the form _{}by trial and error orby grouping. The student will also beable to factor the difference of two squares, the sum and difference of twocubes, and selected polynomial expressions that require a combination of thepreceding strategies.

The student willsolve selected quadratic equations by using factoring techniques and the zeroproduct rule.

Thestudent will simplify a rational expression formed from the addition,subtraction, multiplication or division of rational expressions.

Thestudent will solve selected rational equations, checking the solution set forrestrictions, and use these rational equations to model selected applications.

Thestudent will convert a radical expression to exponential form and vice versa.

Thestudent will simplify a radical expression formed from the addition,subtraction, multiplication or division of radical expressions, includingrationalizing a denominator.

Thestudent will solve selected radical equations, checking the solution set forrestrictions, and use radicals to model selectedapplications.

Thestudent will identify the real and imaginary components of complex numbers andsimplify the sum, difference, product, or quotient of complex numbers.

Thestudent will be able to solve any quadratic equation or inequality by using thequadratic formula and/or completing the square method, including quadraticsthat are prime over the integers. The studentwill also be able to solve selected equations in quadratic form.

# PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT

Performance will be measuredusing a written comprehensive final exam. Additional measures may include butare not limited to exams, quizzes, homework, class participation, collaborativelearning.

A. CollegeRequirements:

A written, comprehensivefinal examination, not to exceed two and one-half hours in length, shall begiven at the end of each semester for each course at the regularly scheduledtime. Any exceptions to these requirements must be approved by the appropriatedean. Other examinations are given at the discretion of the instructor.

A student who must be absent from a final examination should petition thatinstructor for permission to postpone the examination. **A student absentwithout permission from a final examination is graded F. **Postponedexaminations result in a grade of I. The final exam must be taken within 120calendar days from the end of the semester or the grade automatically becomesan F. (San Antonio College Bulletin, Faculty Handbook - January 1995)

C. InstructorRequirements:

Grades will be determinedfrom the scores on the four in-class exams and the comprehensive final. Theexact dates of the exams will be announced in the class. There is no make-upfor missed tests. However, the final exam score used to replace the missing orlowest grade. The weights of the exams for the final grade are as follows:

Other Exams 70%

Final Exam 30%

your score grade will be determined from the course average as follows:
