MTH107: Developmental Algebra

Course Overview

This is the first course in a two-year algebra sequence that concludes with Continuing Algebra. In this course, students begin to explore the tools and principles of algebra. Students learn to identify the structure and properties of the real number system; complete operations with integers and other rational numbers; work with square roots and irrational numbers; graph linear equations; solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable; and solve systems of linear equations. Sophisticated virtual manipulatives and online graphing tools help students visualize algebraic relationships.

Developmental Algebra covers fewer topics than a one-year algebra course, providing students with more time to learn and practice key concepts and skills. After completing Developmental Algebra, students will be prepared to take Continuing Algebra.
