Basic Algebra

MAT 098

The following topics are covered in this first course in algebra: signed numbers, properties of real numbers, operations with polynomials, introduction to exponents, first degree equations and inequalities, introduction to absolute value, word problems, and graphing. Students may not use this course to satisfy mathematics requirements or mathematics electives in a program unless specifically approved by the Department of Mathematics and the department offering that program. The course satisfies an open elective at SUNY Ulster, but may not transfer to other institutions. Prerequisite: ISP 091 with a grade of C or better or by Entering Student Assessment.

Intermediate Algebra

MAT 100

Extending the skills covered in MAT 098, students learn factoring, algebraic fractions, exponents, roots, radicals, and quadratic functions. Students may not use this course to satisfy mathematics requirements or mathematics electives in a program unless specifically approved by the Department of Mathematics and the department offering that program. The course satisfies an open elective at SUNY Ulster, but may not transfer to other institutions. Prerequisite: MAT 098 with a grade of C or better or equivalent course in elementary algebra or by Entering Student Assessment.

College Algebra

MAT 105

Topics in this course include complex numbers; linear and quadratic equations; absolute value and polynomial inequalities; coordinate geometry of the line and circle; linear and polynomial functions; techniques of graphing; exponential functions; and an introduction to logarithms. A scientific hand-held calculator is required. Prerequisite: MAT 100 with a grade of C or better, high school equivalent (see Guidelines for Mathematics Placement, p. 178), or by Entering Student Assessment. This course should not be taken by students who plan to take MAT 160.

Coll Algebra&Trigonometry

MAT 115

Topics in mathematics preparatory to MAT 160 are covered in this course.
