MATH 1200 - College Algebra
Equations, functions and graphs, including linear equations and systems, polynomials, rational and radical expressions, quadratic equations, exponential and logarithmic functions, and inequalities. Students who will not need MATH 1200 for their intended majors or as a prerequisite for other classes should consider MATH 1090, MATH 1250, MATH 1260, or another Tier I quantitative skills course instead. No credit for both this course and MATH 1321 (first course taken deducted). No credit if the student has credit for MATH 2301, 2302, or higher than 2500.
Requisites: C or better in MATH D005 or MATH 102 or MATH D004 or Math Placement Level 1 or higher WARNING: No credit for this course and MATH 1321 (first course taken deducted). No credit if the student has credit for MATH 2301, 2302, or higher than 2500.

- Students will be able to analyze the algebraic structure and graph of functions to determine intercepts, domain, range, intervals on which the function is increasing, decreasing or constant, etc.
- Students will be able to determine algebraically and graphically whether the graph of an equation exhibits symmetry.
- Studens will be able to determine whether an algebraic relation or given graph represents a function.
- Students will be able to find inverses of functions and understand the relationship of the graph of a function to that of its inverse.
- Students will be able to perform operations with functions including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and composition.
- Students will be able to perform transformations of functions including translations, reflections and stretching and shrinking.
- Students will be able to represent functions verbally, numerically, graphically and algebraically, including linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, root/radical/power, exponential, logarithmic and piecewise-defined functions.
- Students will be able to solve a system of linear equations graphically and algebraically by substitution and elimination, and solve application problems that involve systems of linear equations.
- Students will be able to solve a variety of equations, including polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic, including equations arising in application problems.
- Students will be able to solve polynomial and rational inequalities graphically and algebraically.
- Students will be able to understand the difference between an algebraic equation of one, two or more variables and a function and the relationship among the solutions of an equation in one variable, the zeros and intercepts of the corresponding function.
- Students will be able to use functions, including those listed in the first outcome, to model a variety of real-world problemsolving applications.
- Students will be able to use the Remainder and Factor Theorems for polynomial functions.
