# Syllabus for Introduction to Algebra, Elementary Algebra and Intermediate Algebra

This packet contains almost everything you need to know about taking this online course from
Umpqua Community College. Don‘t lose this as it will demonstrate its usefulness throughout
the course.

First read what other students are saying about taking this math course.

I am amazed that I can be enjoying this math course. I thought after 40 years of being out of school I would
never understand the concepts this course is teaching—let alone enjoy it. MyMathLab is easy to follow and
easy to use. I use the text from the book first and work through till I have a clear understanding then go to the
homework page on my PC. I really like the study plan feature as it helps me to keep everything in perspective and

I love this class! The software (MyMathLab) is easy to use and there is so much information to help you learn. I
actually enjoy doing my math homework! – Lesley Wyer.

 UMPQUA COMMUNITY COLLEGE MATH 060 COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course is intended for students who wish to start at the very beginning of algebra. Basic concepts,
definitions, and procedures are stressed as are practical applications. An emphasis of the course will be on
problem solving skills. This course will introduce basic operations with integers, exponents, scientific notation,
algebraic expressions, linear equations, geometry, ratio and proportion, and percent, operations with polynomials,
and factoring polynomials.

After completion of this course, you will be able to.

• Use order of operations to evaluate an algebraic expression.
• Write and solve linear equations for some real-life problems (involving geometry).
• Solve literal equations for a given variable.
• Perform basic operations with polynomials,
• Work with integer exponents and scientific notation.
• Factor certain types of polynomials,
• Brag to all of your friends that you understand Algebra.

Prerequisites for Math 060: Per the UCC Catalog, Math 20 or equivalent with a grade of ―C‖ or better.

 UMPQUA COMMUNITY COLLEGE MATH 065 COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course in algebra is intended for the student who has familiarity with beginning algebra and geometry
concepts. This course includes solving quadratic equations by factoring and using quadratic formulas, applications
of linear and quadratic equations, algebraic solutions involving radicals, graphing lines with applications, and
solving a system of equations in two variables using elimination or substitution with applications in systems.

After completion of this course, you will be able to.

• Sketch the graphs of linear equations and determine the slope and intercepts.
• Create the equation of a line from given conditions.
• Solve a system of linear equations using substitution and addition methods.
• Factor polynomials.
• Solve compound inequalities and express the solution in interval notation.
• Solve quadratic equations using factoring, the square root property, and the quadratic formula.
• Gain the applause and admiration of the mathematical community of the world.

Prerequisites for Math 065: Per the UCC Catalog, Math 060 or equivalent with a grade of ―C‖ or better.
It‘s possible that even though you have the prerequisites for this course, you still may not be ready
academically for Math 65. If you feel that you are ready for Elementary Algebra, you will be required to
pass a prerequisite proficiency test during the first week of the course. If you perform poorly on this
proficiency, you may be advised to take a different course.

 UMPQUA COMMUNITY COLLEGE MATH 095 COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course assumes some prior exposure to algebra. Whereas basic fundamental concepts will be stressed, the
pace of the course will be faster than an introductory course. The course covers the usual topics of elementary
algebra including graphing, rational expressions, and rational exponents. The student entering this course should
already be comfortable with solving linear equations, working with integer exponents, and factoring. The course
will emphasize problem solving and applications.

After completion of this course, you will be able to.

• Use dimensional analysis to convert units.
• Perform simple operations and solve equations with rational expressions.
• Work with rational exponents.
• Cross the Pons Asinorum

Prerequisites for Math 095: Per the UCC Catalog, Math 065 or equivalent with a grade of ―C‖ or better.
It‘s possible that even though you have the prerequisites for this course, you still may not be ready
academically for Math 95. If you feel that you are ready for Intermediate Algebra, you will be required
to pass a prerequisite proficiency test during the first week of the course. If you perform poorly on this
proficiency, you may be advised to take a different course.

Midterm and Final Exams: You will have two on-campus proctored exams administered through MyMathLab
(Please bring photo-identification). The midterm will occur during the sixth week of the term. During the fifth
and tenth week you will need to schedule a testing time with Clara Smithey, ,
541/440-4715. Currently, the testing lab is located on the UCC campus in the Educational Skills Building (ESB)
room 15A. The final will be during the eleventh week of the term. You are not permitted to use notes of any
kind during these exams. However, you may use a calculator. YOU MUST SCHEUDLE DURING THE FIFTH
AND TENTH WEEK. IF YOU FAIL TO DO SO YOU MAY LOSE UP TO 10% OF YOUR GRADE.
