MAT 0600 Bridge to College Math

The topics contained in MAT 0100, MAT 0200, and MAT 0300 will be delivered in a self-paced format using technology, allowing students to begin at the appropriate level based on course placement and allowing them to move through as many topics, and courses, as they can within the time limits of the semester. Topics include: a brief review of pre-algebra concepts, solving and graphing linear equations and inequalities, factoring, simplifying polynomial and rational expressions, solving and graphing systems of linear equations and inequalities in two variables, solving and graphing quadratic equations, complex numbers, and simplifying exponential and radical expressions. At the end of the semester, based on proficiency of the topics in one or more courses, students will earn a grade of "S" for satisfactory progress and gain permission to enter subsequent courses in their plan of study. Note: Courses that begin with a zero are developmental in nature. Credit earned in developmental courses will not apply to the overall program hours. Six lab hours per week.
