### 1011Q. Introductory College Algebra and Mathematical Modeling

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: Not open to students who have passed a Q course. RHAG students cannot take more than 22 credits of 1000 level courses.

Grading Basis: Graded

Emphasizes two components necessary for success in 1000-level courses which employ mathematics. The first component consists of basic algebraic notions and their manipulations. The second component consists of the practice of solving multi-step problems from other disciplines, called mathematical modeling. The topics include: lines, systems of equations, polynomials, rational expressions, exponential and logarithmic functions. Students will engage in group projects in mathematical modeling. Strongly recommended as preparation for Q courses for students whose high school algebra needs reinforcement.
