MTH 001 : Intermediate Algebra

This course prepares students for College Algebra. Coverage will include basic algebraic operations, polynomials, rational expressions, exponents and radicals, linear equations, quadratic equations, radical equations, absolute value equations, solving inequalities, functions, and graphing. This course may NOT be used to satisfy mathematics proficiency at Lyon College and it does NOT count toward the 120 hours necessary to graduate. It DOES count in a student's course load and DOES count toward a student's GPA. Students who earn less than a 'C' grade in this course must repeat it.
