College of Arts & Sciences (WARSC)
Basic Mathematics
The purpose of this course is to enable the student who did not take algebra in high school or who took it several years ago to succeed in an intermediate algebra course or in courses that require a very basic knowledge of the fundamentals of algebra. Topics included in the course are properties of the rational numbers to include review of operations with fractions, simple linear equations and inequalities in one variable, ratio, proportion, percent, basic operations with simple polynomials and applications to problem solving integrated throughout the course. This course cannot be used to satisfy credit for General Education requirements.

This course is designed to provide the student with a review of some principles of arithmetic and an introduction to basic algebra and using mathematics in problem solving. The intent is to better prepare students for an algebra course at the intermediate level or pre-college level.

1. Identify and use basic properties of the real number system (commutative properties, associative properties, identity elements, inverses, distributive property, etc.).

2. Perform the fundamental operations of arithmetic including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division with rational numbers in both fractional and decimal form.

3. Solve simple linear equations and inequalities in one variable using the multiplication and addition properties of equality.

4. Use ratio, proportion and percents in problem solving.

5. Identify polynomials and perform the basic operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication on polynomials.

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.
