MAT222 Intermediate Alebra COURSE GUIDE 4 Course at a Glance Course Description In this course students will explore a wider range of Algebra topics beyond the introductory level. Topics will include polynomials, functions, rational expressions, systems of equations and inequalities, operations with radicals, and quadratic equations. Emphasis will be placed on developing an awareness of the use of mathematics as it exists in the world today. Course Design To accomplish the learning objectives set forth in this course, students will participate in a combination of interactive discussions, problem-solving, and short answer Homework. Students are required to write out the mathematical justifications for the steps they take in solving problems, which underscores their understanding of the problems. In the required writing, students are also encouraged to use specific mathematical vocabulary and proper notation. The Homework is designed so that guessing is not a viable option. Rather, proper algorithms and procedures must be followed in order to achieve success. Plenty of practice and step-by-step guidance are available through the ALEKS Math Lab associated with this course.
