This is the first course in a two-semester sequence of
intermediate algebra and trigonometry with technical applications.
Course topics include operations in the real
number system, units of measurement and approximate numbers, functions and
graphs, first-degree equations, lines and linear functions, systems of
linear equations, right triangle trigonometry, geometry (perimeters, areas,
volumes of common figures), rules of exponents, polynomial operations,
factoring, operations on rational expressions, quadratic equation, and
binary and hexadecimal notation. The use of graphing calculator is required
for this course to further the exploration of these topics and their
Near the end of the
course, students will complete a comprehensive departmental final exam to
assess their preparedness to move on to MAT205 Technical Mathematics II.
Prerequisite: C- or better in MAT 100 or equivalent, or by placement.
