24.31. MTH - MATHEMATICS

MTH 0223

Intermediate Algebra

3 Hours

Intermediate Algebra is designed as a refresher course in basic algebra skills. Topics include graphing points, lines, and inequalities; factoring; rational expressions; ratios, proportions, and percentages; exponents and radicals; solving quadratic equations by factoring, completing the square, and the quadratic formula; logarithms, and systems of equations. Intermediate Algebra is the high school equivalency course mandated by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. The student earns no credit toward graduation, although the grade will affect the student's GPA. To advance to the next course, the student must earn at least a grade of "C".
