Course Materials for Mrs. Angelis
Developmental Math 2
This is an introductory pre-algebra class. Both Developmental Math 1 and Developmental Math 2 prepare students for Intermediate Algebra and College Algebra. Lessons include sets, fundamental operations with polynomials, linear equations and inequalities with applications, factoring and its use in algebra, an introduction to graphing of linear equations, and an introduction to radicals. A passing score on the final exam is required for a minimum final course grade of C, which is required for successful completion of this course. Textbook is in the bookstore only, it is a custom text created especially for this class. Paper and pencil are required every day, and no calculators are allowed in this course.
Topics include linear equations and inequalities in two variables and their graphs, systems of linear equations and inequalities, introduction to functions, factoring, algebraic fractions, rational equations, radicals and rational exponents, complex numbers, quadratic equations, scientific notation, applications of the above topics and the communication of mathematics. Applications emphasizing connections with other disciplines and the real world will be included. This course does not satisfy the Gordon Rule in mathematics but can be used to fulfill the general education requirement of the A.S. degree. A minimum grade of “C” is required to use this course as a prerequisite for later mathematics courses. The text for this course is the online version on Intermediate Algebra by Elayn Martin-Gay and you must purchase access to this online book and the software that is required for the course (MyMathLab) in the bookstore together. Bring the card you purchase in the bookstore to the first day of class to log in with an access code that I must give you in person.
In this Golden Rule Course, students will explore functions and their role in problem solving. A great deal of time will be spent graphing, with and without technology. In addition, linear, quadratic, rational, radical, exponential and logarithmic functions will be completely explained including real life applications of each. A minimum grade of C is required to pass this course. The text for this course is the online version of College Algebra 10th edition by Sullivan and you must purchase access to this online book and the software that is required for the course (MyMathLab) in the bookstore together. Bring the card you purchase in the bookstore to the first day of class to log in with an access code that I must give you in person.
Prerequisite: Minimum grade of C in MAC 1105 or appropriate score on an approved assessment. This course will give students the algebra preparation for the calculus sequence. Topics include a symbolical, graphical, and numerical analysis of polynomials, exponential, logarithmic, power, and rational functions; matrices, sequences, induction, binomial theorem and conic sections. Applications emphasizing connections with other disciplines and with the real world will be included. Technology tools will be utilized in addition to analytical methods. Gordon Rule course. Minimum grade of C required if MAC 1140 is used to satisfy Gordon Rule and general education requirements. Go to the Valencia bookstore to purchase the online textbook for this course, which you will get along with an access code for MyMathLab (which is required).
