MATH101

Fundamentals of Mathematics 

This course covers introductory algebra. Topics include linear
equations, polynomials, factoring, quadratic equations, straight
line graphing, and problem solving. Grades assigned for this course
include the 12point grading scale and the addition of an "NC"
grade. "NC" stands for no credit and it doesn't affect the GPA.

to meet their prerequisites for other higherlevel classes. ("NC"
may not be available in all offcampus programs due to state rulings
on repeating courses). This is a developmental course.
