Math 100 students will learn fractions, decimals and percents, word problems, signed numbers and pre-algebra. They will also learn causes and effects of processes and that this can be expressed through mathematical equations. Learning is enhanced by weekly problem sets.
Math 200 students will learn first and second degree algebra, graphing solution sets of equations, perform addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with polynomials, understand geometry, basic trigono-metric and pre-calculus problems using the sine, cosine and tangent. They will learn how to properly use a calculator.
Students wanting to augment the above work may participate in Math 300. They will learn advanced algebraic concepts through the study of functions, "families of functions," equations, inequalities, polynomials, rational expressions, elementary trigonometry and complex numbers. They will learn the use of technology (computer software and graphic calculator).
