College Algebra is a college-level algebra course for non-mathematics majors. In this course, students will become familiar with currently taught algebraic vocabulary, symbols, and notation and will learn to solve both routine problems requiring basic algebraic skills and non-routine problems that demonstrate their understanding of concepts. The subject matter of this course includes number systems and operations, algebraic operations, equations and inequalities, and functions and their properties.

#### Course Objectives

• Understand basic algebraic operations such as exponents, factoring, absolute value, and properties of logarithms;
• Interpret functions in forms that include graphs, numerals, and symbols;
• Identify and analyze number systems and their operations including sequences, series, and factorials;
• Apply algebraic knowledge to both routine (straightforward) and non-routine (real world) problems.
• Solve linear and quadratic equations and inequalities
