Math 11100 is offered in the fall and spring terms, and in both summer sessions. In this course you will be introduced to many of the fundamental concepts of algebra and the methods needed for their application; you will also work to improve your critical thinking and problem solving skills. Topics include integers, rational and real numbers, exponents, linear equations and inequalities, polynomials and factoring, quadratic equations and inequalities, graphing, exponential and logarithmic functions, and much more. Note that success in many of your future courses (especially your STEM courses) will depend heavily upon what you learn in Math 11100.PREREQUISITE FOR MATH 11100: The prerequisite for this course is Math 11000 within the last three terms (with grade >=C) or ALEKs placement score of at least 40. If you do not meet the prerequisite or if you are not certain that you need to take this course you should talk to me immediately to decide whether Math 11100 is an appropriate course for youat this time. Course changes, if needed, should be made during the first week of class (by Sunday, Jan. 13, via One.IU). MORE ON PREREQUISITES: Math 11100 (we say “one-eleven”) is intended primarily for students pursuing careers in a STEM field, especially students who must take Math 15300 (College Algebra). Math 11100 is the prerequisite for Math 15300. The minimal grade in 11100 for advancement to 15300 is C. The registrar will not allow you to advance to 15300 with a grade of C- or lower in 11100, even if you successfully register for 15300 before taking the 11100 finals. It is important to note that another course, i.e., Math 11000 (“one-ten”), is an algebra course that is designed exclusively for non-STEM majors. Now, while 11000 does not satisfy the prerequisite for 15300, both 11000 and 11100 do satisfy the prereq’ for Math M118, M119, and Stat 301 (with C- in either course). However, even though C- or better in Math 11100 satisfies the prerequisite for M118, etc., 11100 is more rigorous than 11000 and a deeper understanding of the content is needed. Therefore, you should be cautious about taking 11100 just “to have the option to seek a STEM degree.” In particular, if your grade in 11100 is below C-, the grade you do earn will remain on your transcript unless you retake 11100 to replace it with a higher grade, even though switching to 11000 next semester would “be enough” for M118, etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
