Math 100-Preparation for University Level Mathematics (3 credits) UA ALEKS Prep for Calculus score of 20-39% or Prep for College Algebra score of 30-54% required.


Description: The main purpose of this course is to serve as a preparation for MATH 105, MATH 107, MATH 109C, and MATH 112. Work in the course is primarily self-directed, with mandatory weekly interaction with the instructional team. Content includes the following topics: linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, and absolute value equations and inequalities, algebraic expressions, graphing techniques, factoring techniques, exponents and logarithms. Students who wish to continue to higher level math courses will have the option to work with additional course material in algebra and trigonometry to facilitate this preparation. This course by itself cannot be used to satisfy the general math requirement for any degree program at the University of Arizona. 


Comments:  Some students with only one math requirement will need to take this course in the Spring. This course is available during Summer for students who need to take a higher level math course in the Fall (please refer to the Summer Schedule of Classes). This course does not serve as a prerequisite to any UA Math course. Students must place into the next course through the Math 100 final exam. The next course is generally Math 105, 107, 109C, or 112.
