MAT060: Pre-Algebra (Period 3)

Course Description

This course builds proficiency in arithmetic, algebra, and problem-solving skills that have uses in everyday life, in many careers, and in advanced mathematics courses. We will explore math concepts in these contexts.

The course is designed for students who dislike math or don’t feel they are good at it, students who want to go on to higher-level math classes, and students who need review of topics taught in other pre-algebra courses. 

This course’s content includes the vocabulary, operations, and applications of real numbers, fractions, signed numbers, and algebraic expressions. It also covers the solution of basic first-degree equations and associated word problems.
