MATH 41 is a course that is offered through the Math Learning Center (formerly MATH 1000) for students who need to review arithmetic or those who are preparing to take algebra in the future. Please read the course description carefully. Students who successfully complete both MATH 41 and MATH 42 would be eligible to sign up for an algebra course. Students must attend the mandatory orientation during the first class meeting.


MATH 41    Algebra Readiness - Part I    3 Units

Prerequisite: None.
Advisory: CISC 100, CISC 300, or CISC 305 with a grade of "C" or better, AND ENGRD 116 or ESLR 320 with a grade of "C" or better. Placement through the math assessment process.
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course is the first of two parts covering algebra readiness in a mastery-based learning environment. The fundamentals of arithmetic are introduced, with an emphasis on problem solving and computational skills. Topics include whole numbers, exponents, order of operations, factors, fractions, decimals, proportion, ratios, rates, problem solving, and applications. The course is offered through the Multimedia Math Learning Center (MMLC), using an independent study approach under the direction of an instructor. Computer-based instruction via the Internet is an integral part of the course. Students are required to purchase a workbook that is bundled with the on-line video and math content system. One set of materials can be used for multiple MMLC courses, if completed in consecutive semesters. The content in the course is organized into various modules. Each module must be completed at a mastery level before the student moves on to the next. Students will demonstrate mastery by successfully completing assignments and then earning at least 80% on the module exam that is taken on-line in the MMLC. If necessary students will repeat the exam until mastery is achieved. All modules must be completed before the student takes the final exam, a comprehensive test on paper that is taken once and determines the majority of the course grade. Regular class attendance is required throughout the semester, including the mandatory orientation during the first class meeting. Students may also visit the MMLC during other hours of operation to receive tutoring, complete assignments, and take exams. This course may be completed as quickly as possible but no later than the end of the semester. Students who complete this course during the first half of the semester may sign up immediately for MATH 42. For the most updated information, please visit the MMLC web page on the ARC website. Completion of MATH 41 with a grade of "C" or better meets the prerequisite for MATH 42 and MATH 32.

MATH 132 is open only to students who have already completed MATH 131 with a grade of "C" or better before the first day of class. Students must attend the mandatory orientation during the first class meeting.


MATH 132    Combined Algebra - Part II    3 Units

Prerequisite: MATH 131 with a grade of "C" or better
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course is the second of three parts covering combined algebra in a mastery-based learning environment. Problem-solving skills are emphasized throughout the course. Topics include polynomial factorization, rational expressions and equations, radical expressions and equations, rational exponents, and related applications. The course is offered through the Multimedia Math Learning Center (MMLC), using an independent study approach under the direction of an instructor. Details about the program can be found in the catalog description for MATH 131. This course may be completed as quickly as possible but no later than the end of the semester. Students who complete this course during the first half of the semester may sign up immediately for MATH 133. For the most updated information, please visit the MMLC web page on the ARC website. Completion of MATH 131 AND MATH 132 with grades of "C" or better meets the prerequisite for MATH 133, MATH 110, MATH 120, and MATH 125.
