MATH 100BC - Accelerated Algebra

This accelerated course is designed for students pursuing a major requiring pre-calculus. It provides students with the necessary algebra skills, graphing and calculator skills, problem solving strategies, and academic study skills. Permission of instructor. MATH 100BC and MATH 100C  are equivalent courses; a student may not receive credit for both.

Prerequisite: successful completion of MATH 100A or placement test scores qualifying for MATH 100B, but not MATH 100C; and an intention to pursue a major requiring MATH 153 or higher.

Credits: (5)

Learner Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • recognize, translate and solve inequalities in symbolic and graphic situations.
  • understand, recognize and apply set notation and interval notation to identified sections of a graph.
  • solve simple and complex expressions and equations by appropriately applying order of operations.
  • convert, simplify, solve and apply operations of fractions in isolation and in real world problems.
  • recognize, sketch, solve, translate and write equations of linear functions given graphs, data and/or equations.
  • identify, describe, sketch and solve quadratic equations in standard and vertex form, translating between the two.
  • make and explain the connections between properties of quadratic equations and the graph, creating equations when necessary.
  • recognize, recall and apply properties of exponents to simplify expressions and equations.
  • identify and perform basic factoring on polynomials (difference of squares, greatest common factor, grouping, leading coefficient of 1).
  • identify and perform advanced factoring on polynomials (leading coefficient </>1, factoring twice).
  • identify, classify and create regression equations given tables of data or graphs.
  • recognize, identify and describe properties of a function from a given graph or function.
  • apply understanding of properties of functions and identify them in a given graph or function.
  • write, modify and describe transformations in equations and graphs.
  • recall the quadratic formula and apply it to given equations in standard and non-standard form.
  • identify and state properties of polynomial functions and translate the function to a graph and vice versa.
  • apply understanding of factoring to find domain and simplify rational functions.
  • apply understanding of rational expressions to solve rational equations for a variable. 
  • translate between radical and exponential form and apply properties of radicals to simplify.
  • apply properties of operations with radicals to compute, solve and simplify radical equations.
