Intermediate Algebra for Science, Technology, Engineering,
intermediate algebra course is designed for students who are considering
further study in the sciences, technology, engineering, or mathematics. In the
context of studying a large library of basic functions and their graphs,
students strengthen and expand their algebra skills. The library includes
linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, radical, exponential, and logarithmic
functions, as well as inverse functions and the absolute value function.
Particular emphasis is placed on the operations on functions, as well as
solving equations and inequalities. Other topics include solving systems of
equations, operations on complex numbers, and applications.
Note:Mathematics 80 serves as a prerequisite course for
all transfer-level mathematics course sequences, including the calculus
sequence (Mathematics 170, 180, 190, 191 and 220)..
