MATH80 PREALGEBRA
3 units: 3 hours lecture.
Prerequisite: MATH91. Advisories: ENGL81, ENGL81L.
The course begins with a brief review of the number system and operations on numbers, including whole numbers, decimals, and fractions. The course covers percents, ratios, proportions, measurements, exponents, square roots, simple geometry, the metric system, and an introduction to algebra. Written problems and applications will be stressed throughout the course. Scientific calculator skills are stressed in all areas. (5/01)
MATH83 MATH FOR OCCUPATIONS AND TRADES
3 units: 3 hours lecture.
Prerequisite: MATH91. Advisories: ENGL81, ENGL81L.
This course begins with a brief review of the number system and operations on numbers, including whole numbers, decimals, and fractions. The course covers percents, ratios, proportions measurements, exponents, square roots, simple geometry, the metric system, and an introduction to algebra. Written problems and specific applications to occupations and trades will be stressed throughout the course. Scientific calculator skills are stressed in all areas. (5/01)
MATH89ABCD MATH LABORATORY
.5  2 units: 1.5  6 hours lab.
Advisory: MATH90. (Note: The letter designation indicates unit value, ''A'' being for 0.5 unit, ''B'' for 1 unit, etc., in 0.5 unit increments.)
This course is a laboratory experience primarily to help students who have taken a math class but who still need additional work before they progress to the next math class. It is designed to provide individualized assistance to improve a student's deficient areas. The number of hours and the number of assignments vary based on the units enrolled in. Each letter (i.e., A, B, C, or D) may be taken only once. (4/04)
MATH90 FUNDAMENTALS OF ARITHMETIC
3 units: 3 hours lecture.
Advisory: ENGL90.
This is an intensive review of the whole number system, including counting, notation, word names, and the number line. Particular emphasis is placed on the basic computational skills: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Written problems and life skills will be emphasized throughout the course. Calculator skills as they relate to whole numbers will be introduced. (5/01)
MATH91 FUNDAMENTALS OF DECIMALS AND FRACTIONS
3 units: 3 hours lecture.
Prerequisite: MATH90. Advisories: ENGL80, ENGL80L.
This course begins with a short review of the whole number system using basic computational skills. The course covers the meaning of decimals and fractions, and the four basic operations using them: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Special emphasis will be placed on thought problems, including life skills. The course will conclude with an introduction to prime factoring, exponents, basic geometry, and order of operation.
