Enhanced Math

These classes cover the same challenging material as the traditional classes, but they provide a more supportive academic environment. Students will attend 5 classes a week (instead of 3) for Math 115 and spend an extra 50 minutes per week for Math 121, with the additional time for intensive and supplemental instruction. Students in these classes will study with their instructor at a slower pace and will receive more personalized attention.

MATH 101 College Algebra
Coordinate systems, functions and their graphs; linear, quadratic, general polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions;equations and inequalities; linear and non-linear systems and matrices. Not open to students with credit in MATH 104. Prerequisite: MATH 002, or two years of high school algebra and a score of 22 or higher on ACT mathematics, or a qualifying score on the mathematics placement test. LEC.
