College Algebra I

College Algebra I focuses on some concepts from basic algebra that are prerequisites for pre-calculus. Students in this course explore central concepts in algebra, develop proficiency in manipulating algebraic expressions, solve algebraic equations and inequalities, and use them to model and solve real world problems. Students gain experience as problem solvers and analyze problems in an organized manner. They engage in the exploration and discovery of concepts and learn to work cooperatively to solve problems. They demonstrate understanding by explaining in written and oral form the meanings and applications of concepts. Topics covered include basic algebraic operations, exponents, radicals and polynomials, rational expressions, linear equations and inequalities, linear, quadratic and rational equations, and graphing and its transformations, operations on functions, composite and inverse, linear graphing, and quadratic and rational functions.

Pre-Calculus I

Pre-Calculus I deepens students’ understanding of algebra and extends their ability to apply algebra concepts and procedures at higher conceptual levels, as a tool, and in the study of other subjects. The study of the topics, concepts, and procedures of pre-calculus is strongly recommended for all college-bound students. These topics, concepts, and procedures are prerequisites for many college programs in science, engineering, medicine, and business. Topics of this part include: polynomials, rational and radical expressions, linear and non-linear equations and inequalities, analytic geometry, and linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions. There is a strong emphasis on the student's ability to understand problems presented in English, to apply concepts from algebra to solve such problems, and to provide explanations of the solutions to such problems in writing.
