THE DEVELOPMENTAL MATH PROGRAM

Located in the Learning Resource Center, the Developmental Math Program is designed for students who desire to improve their mathematics skills in Arithmetic, Pre-algebra, Algebra, and Geometry.

Courses:

Mathematics G010/G010L – 4 Units
Elementary Algebra
Prerequisites: Mathematics G008 or Mathematics Placement Assessment
This course is equivalent to a first-year high school algebra course. The topics covered include properties of real numbers, simplifying polynomial, rational, and radical expressions, and solving linear, quadratic, rational, and radical equations in one variable. The rectangular coordinate system is covered including graphing linear equations in two variables and solving systems of linear equations in two variables. Applications of mathematical concepts are incorporated throughout the course. This course is taught in a combined large lecture and laboratory format. Lecture & lab. Letter grade only. Not transferable, not degree applicable.

MATHEMATICS G030/G030L – 4 Units
Intermediate Algebra
Prerequisites: Mathematics G010 or Mathematics Placement Assessment
This course is equivalent to a second-year high school algebra course. Topics include absolute value, rational exponents, radicals, linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations and inequalities, functional notation, linear and quadratic functions, conic sections, logarithms, exponential and logarithmic functions, linear systems in two and three variables, sequences, and series. Lecture & lab. Letter grade only.

MATHEMATICS G040 – 5 Units
Accelerated Elementary and Intermediate Algebra
Equivalent to a first and second year high school algebra course accelerated into one semester. Taught in a combined large lecture and laboratory format. Software used requires access to a computer. It is taught using group lectures in conjunction with computer assignments and laboratory work. Topics include: properties of real numbers; simplifying polynomial, rational, and radical expressions; solving linear, quadratic, rational, and radical equations in one variable; graphing and solving systems of linear equations in two variables, absolute value, rational exponents, quadratic equations and inequalities, linear and quadratic functions, conic sections, exponential and logarithmic functions, sequences, and series. A scientific calculator will be required. Lecture & lab. Letter grade only.

MATHEMATICS G080 – 5 Units
Pre-Statistics
This course is designed for students whose education plan calls for Math G160: Introduction to Statistics. It may not be suitable for students on a STEM degree pathway. Please see a counselor for more information. The course covers requisite topics from Intermediate Algebra including linear equations and inequalities, linear regression analysis, exponential functions, exponential equations, descriptive statistics, probability, sampling distributions including the Normal distribution, and the use of graphing calculators and/or computer software. Lecture & lab. Letter grade only. Not transferable, not degree applicable.
