Developmental-level math courses are provided as a service to help prepare for 1000-level math courses. These courses carry credit for use at MCC only; the credit does not transfer nor does it apply toward graduation.
- Math courses require a heavy time commitment. The student should be certain she/he has adequate time available to work on these courses in addition to the scheduled class period. • It is best to take math courses in consecutive quarters, if possible, so that continuity of material is not lost.
Basic algebra skills are extended in this course to provide the background necessary for further mathematics courses. Topics included are: linear, quadratic, polynomial, radical, and rational equations; systems of linear equations; rational exponents and polynomial factoring; rational and radical expressions; complex numbers; and graphs of linear and quadratic functions.
