Introductory examination of the structure of the number system. Covers such topics as an introduction to set operations, the field axioms of the real numbers, and the properties of the whole number exponents. Emphasizes operations with fundamental expressions, solutions of first-degree equations, inequalities and linear systems. Introduces absolute value, radical and quadratic equations, applied problems involving first and second degree equations in one variable, point-slope and slope-intercept equations of lines and their graphs, and the concepts of relations and functions.

As a result of successful completion of this course, a student will be able to: a. Recognize the applications of the field axioms of the real number system.b. Define, understand, and apply essential elementary concepts of algebra as specified in the course content outline.c. Demonstrate proficiency in the manipulation of algebraic expressions.d. Define polynomials, rational algebraic expressions and radicals, and perform operations on same.e. Recognize, classify, define, and solve equations, inequalities, systems of equations, and systems of inequalities as specified in the course outline.f. Analyze given information, develop a strategy, and formulate a mathematical model for solving applied problems; obtain and interpret solution(s).g. Develop and apply concepts associated with relations and functions.

• A grade of "C" or better in MATH 320.

• SCC minimum English and Math Standards.

• 1. Discussion of material. I will be assuming that you have already read the material in advance. I will discuss in class the basic theory of each chapter using PowerPoint slides.

• 2. Demonstration problems (mostly from the even numbered exercises)

• 3. In-class activities and exercises (Bring some blank paper to write on)

• 4. This is a hands-on class. I am more of a facilitator and a problem solver than a lecturer.

• Read the “Preface” pages xii-xvii and read Chapter 1 Sections 1.1 through 1.3.

• Bring your textbook with you to each class. All class Exercises, In-class Activities, and Test Reviews will be taken directly from the class textbook.

This course is intended to be an introduction to computer programming and problem solving. It is directed toward those students who wish to pursue a career in the fields of information technology and for those who want programming and application development skills. It is also useful for those students that are interested in pursuing further studies leading to a degree in one of Solano Community College’s Computer and Information Science degree programs.
