Math A Syllabus - Elementary Algebra   My Math Lab – Online Fall, 2009   Course Code:  81576 I NSTRUCTOR   Barbara Erysian (pronounced  Ē -r ē ’-zhen) O FFICE V 313 b O FFICE  H OURS M  W: 7:30 – 9:30 am P HONE (916) 660.7974 W EB  S ITE MyMathLab C OURSE  ID: erysian80563 EMAIL [email protected] C OURSE  D ESCRIPTION Real numbers and their properties, first degree equations and inequalities, graphs of linear  equations in two variables, systems of linear equations in two variables, properties of integer  exponents, polynomial operations, basic factoring, rational expressions, radical expressions,  quadratic equations, and applied problems and problem solving. Student Performance  Outcomes: Through homework assignments, quizzes, exams, projects and classroom discussions, the  student will: 1.  execute basic operations with real numbers, including positive and negative numbers,  fractions, decimals, and numbers with exponents; 2.  show equivalency of expressions involving numbers and variables, using properties of  equality and the properties of real numbers; 3.  translate from written or spoken language phrases and sentences to algebraic phrases and  sentences; 4.  graph and interpret graphs of linear equations in two variables; identify intercepts, slope of  a line, and solution points; 5.  graph regions representing the solution to linear inequalities; 6.  find equation of a straight line given a graph or information about the line (e.g., given two  points, or a point with the slope or parallel/perpendicular properties); 7.  solve systems of linear equations in two variables using the graphing method, substitution  method, and elimination method; 8.  analyze applied problems leading to linear systems of equations and be able to translate  the problems into systems of equations to solve; 9.  simplify algebraic expressions containing polynomials, simple radical expressions, rational  expressions, and integer exponents;  10.  translate numbers from standard notation to scientific notation and vice versa; 11.  perform basic operations (add, subtract, multiply, and divide) on algebraic expressions  containing polynomials, simple radical expressions, rational expressions, and integer  exponents; 12. analyze polynomial expressions to determine the best approach to factoring, and recognize  non-factorable polynomials;  13.  solve linear equations, linear inequalities, linear absolute value equations, simple radical  equations, and quadratic equations; represent solutions using number lines when  appropriate; and 14.  analyze applied problems associated with each type of equation in #13, and be able to
