(Second 4 Weeks) This is a traditional lecture section that will cover Unit 6 only. Computer access will still be required for homework and quizzes. Class dates: February 11 - March 17, 2014. The MTE courses are lecture courses covering the developmental math units indicated. Each course is four weeks in length with a final exam at the end of the course. If a student needs more than one MTE unit, they should sign up for all required courses at the beginning of the semester in order to ensure a seat. A MyLabsPlus access code will be required for this course. Homework, quizzes and possibly tests will be administered through and completed in MyMathLab.
(1 credit) The student will learn to perform operations on exponential expressions and polynomials. Students will also learn techniques to factor polynomials and use these techniques to solve polynomial equations. Emphasis should be on learning all the different factoring methods, and solving application problems using polynomial equations. Credit is not applicable toward graduation. Prerequisite(s): MTE 5 or qualifying placement score. Lecture 1 hour per week.
