MAT141 College Mathematics 4 Credits
Working knowledge of college-level mathematics and its applications to real-life problems. Emphasis on understanding mathematical concepts and their applications. Topics include proportional reasoning, modeling, finance, probability, and statistics.
Prerequisites: An appropriate District placement, or a grade of C or better in (MAT052, MAT053, and MAT055), or (MAT055, MAT056, and MAT057), or MAT085, or MAT09+, or MAT103, or MAT114, or MAT115, or MAT12+.
MAT141 is appropriate for the student whose major does not require college algebra or precalculus. This class may require a graphing calculator and/or online software package, such as MyMathLab, that may result in an additional cost to the student. Some instructors allow the use of the online textbook that accompanies the online software package in lieu of a physical textbook. Contact your instructor for details. All students must meet the MCC Mathematics Department prerequisite requirements for each class. See www.mesacc.edu/departments/mathematics-computer-science/mathematics/resources/ for department policies. It is highly encouraged that you attend the FREE MCC Math Boot Camp that occurs prior to the beginning of the semester. Participants will review key skills necessary for success; participants will be better prepared for their course.

Fall Flex Start 2022

MAT091 Introductory Algebra 4 Credits
Emphasis on meanings related to variable, equality, inequality, equivalence. The use of additive and multiplicative reasoning in solving linear equations and inequalities in one variable. Validation of solution(s) through a reasonable mathematical defense. Transfer and apply knowledge through a process of sense making and reasonableness in mathematical problems and practical application situations. Recognize patterns and organize data to represent situations where output is related to input. Understand the concept of function and be able to represent functions in multiple ways, including tables, algebraic rules, graphs and contextual situations, and make connections among these representations. Read, represent, and interpret linear function relationships numerically, analytically, graphically and verbally and connect the different representations. Model and solve real world problems involving constant rate of change.
Prerequisites: A grade of C or better in each of the following courses: (MAT051, MAT052, and MAT053), OR a grade of C or better in MAT08+, OR an appropriate district placement.
It is highly encouraged that you attend one of the FREE MCC Math Boot Camps that occur prior to the beginning of the semester.
