Course Information:

This intermediate algebra course is designed for students who are not considering further study in the sciences, technology, engineering or mathematics. In the context of studying basic functions and their graphs, students strengthen and expand their algebra skills. Functions studied include linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, and radical functions, as well as the absolute value function. Particular emphasis is placed on the operations on functions, solving equations and inequalities, as well as using functions to model real life situations. Other topics include solving systems of equations and applications.


If you do not plan to take College Algebra (Math 130) or Trigonometry (Math 170) or any of the Calculus courses (Math 180, 190, 191, 220), then Math 73 is the option for you.  Math 73 is a prerequisite for courses including Math 110, 115, 120, 140, and 150.
