MTH095 :  Intermediate Algebra with Right Triangle Trigonometry

This is an interactive, technology-based course, which investigates the connections and interplay among various mathematical topics for both the baccalaureate-prep and technical-prep student. The function concept is introduced informally. Linear and quadratic functions and their graphs are covered in-depth. Other topics include rational exponents, radical and rational equations, linear and non-linear systems and right triangle trigonometry. A heuristic approach to problem-solving is emphasized with problem situations modeled numerically, algebraically and graphically.
Prerequisite: RD090, WR090 and MTH065, each with a grade of "C" or better; or placement above stated course levels. A graphing calculator is required; TI-83 Plus or TI-84 is recommended.
Credit Hours: 5
