College of Arts & Sciences (WARSC)
Basic Algebra & Trigonometry
The course includes a study of the basic laws of numbers, fractions, exponents, complex numbers, and radicals, as well as an understanding of a variety of expressions and equations including; equalities, inequalities, polynomials, and quadratics. The elements of trigonometry will also be reviewed.

This course is designed to provide the fundamentals of Algebra and Trigonometry necessary for advanced college mathematics courses.

1. Identify, add, subtract, multiply and divide different types of real numbers.

2. Identify and combine common terms in expression and equations; rearrange formulas.

3. Solve linear equations and problems in one unknown and solve formulas for specific unknown.

4. Solve and graph inequalities and solve problems involving inequalities.

5. Solve linear polynomials with one unknown (equalities, inequalities and absolute values).

6. Use integers as exponents in multiplication and division as well as raising a power to a power; and use of scientific notation.

7. Identify, add, subtract, multiply and divide polynomial expressions.

8. Reduce polynomials by identifying common factors and various factoring methods, special products, grouping and trial and error methods.

9. Simplify, add, subtract, multiply and divide rational expressions; understand the LCD.

10. Identify and solve rational expressions and reduce radical expressions.

11. Graph linear equations using tables and intercept methods.

12. Graph solutions to two-variable, linear polynomial equations (equalities and inequalities).

13. Simplify rational expressions and expressions involving rational exponents.

14. Simplify, add, subtract, multiply and divide radical expressions (as well as, rationalize denominators).

15. Solve equations containing a radical term.

16. Solve quadratic equations by use of the Principle of Zero Products and the Quadratic Formula, as well as solve problems involving quadratic equations.

17. Add, subtract, multiply and divide complex numbers.

18. Solve systems of equations containing two unknowns by substitution or elimination.

19. Review concepts of geometry including properties of circles, triangles and intersecting lines.

20. Solve problems involving right triangles as well as finding decimal approximations for trigonometric functions of any acute angle by using a calculator.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
