__Course Description and Expectations__:

Review of basic algebra and trigonometry: operations of real numbers
and algebraic expressions, negative and fractional exponents, polynomials and fractional expressions, linear and quadratic equations,
and right triangle trigonometry. (Lec. 3) For students not sufficiently prepared to take other mathematics courses. Credits may not
be used toward the minimum credits required for graduation or for General Education. S/U only.

Most of your learning will happen while
completing the homework assignments. If you cannot do the exercises, then you will not pass the tests nor the course. You
are expected to arrive at every lecture on time. While in class you should be respectful of the instructor and your classmates at
all times. Ringing cell phones are discourteous and constitute a disruption. Cell phones are to be kept on silent and out of sight
during class. Your positive attitude can only help the learning experience for everyone. If you come to class each day with your notebook,
pen, text, and an open mind, and work hard on homework, this class should prepare you for any General Education math class as well
as for Pre-Caculus.
