Math 002

Intermediate Algebra

Math 002 prepares students for work in a college-level mathematics course. The course focuses on the study of algebraic operations and equation-solving procedures with an emphasis on linear and quadratic functions. The content includes studying operations with real numbers, algebraic expressions, exponents, polynomials, rational expressions, radicals and rational exponents. Students will study linear equations and inequalities, absolute value equations, systems of linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, rational and radical equations, and functions.

Requirements for Intermediate Algebra will be a blend of on-line and in-class activities. Regular class discussions will build on class preparation assignments that students will complete prior to the class meetings. Students will submit homework in both an in-class and on-line environment. Daily class participation, close attention to the vocabulary of algebra, and ”doing math every day” are key to success in the course. Take advantage of the extra resources offered by the Kansas Algebra Program via the drop-in help room, study groups, and opportunities to meet individually with your class discussion leader or the Program Directors.
