Intermediate Algebra for General Education
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
