MATH 1402. COLLEGE ALGEBRA. 4 Hours.
This course is designed as preparation for higher level mathematics courses. Integrated review materials will be used to master targeted areas as students proceed through the course. Topics include foundational numeric and algebraic operations in addition to the study of linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, radical absolute value, logarithmic, and exponential functions, relations and inequalities; graphs, basic characteristics, and operations on functions; real and complex zeros of functions; graphing techniques; systems of equations and matrices. The use of mathematical software and calculators is required. See course syllabus for more details. Non-STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) majors should enroll in MATH 1301, and Business majors should enroll in MATH 1315. Credit may be received for only one of MATH 1301, MATH 1302, MATH 1402, or MATH 1315. Students may not co-enroll in MATH 1302 and MATH 1402.
