Math 1010 is part of the developmental math sequence at Snow College and is designed to prepare students for more rigorous college-level math courses.

This course is similar to courses offered at other institutions in the state.

Students will come to better understand the word and idea of "function" and its relationship to and uses in algebra. They will begin their study of its meaning, uses, transformations, and combinations to create other new and useful functions. Students will be assessed using homework, projects, quizzes or exams.

Students will become more proficient at manipulating and solving algebraic expressions and equations in all their forms at the intermediate level. Students will be assessed using homework, projects, quizzes or exams.

Students will be able to use tables and graphs to demonstrate knowledge of expressions, equations and functions. Students will be assessed using homework, projects, quizzes or exams.

Students will be able to use all of the above-mentioned tools to start with a written description of an application and use their developed problem-solving skills to interpret and translate the application into equation, table, and/or graph form and answer the questions posed in the description. Students will be assessed using homework, projects, quizzes or exams.

Through lecture, instruction, and various other methods, this course may include any of the following topics:

• Linear Equations and Inequalities in One & Two Variables

• Relations & Functions

• Systems of Linear Equations

• Polynomial Arithmetic and Factoring

• Rational Expressions & Equations

• Radicals and Complex Numbers

• Quadratic Equations and Functions

• Exponential & Logarithmic Functions

This course supports an inclusive learning environment where diverse perspectives are recognized, respected and encouraged. Individual instructors are encouraged to include at least one assignment (other than story problems from the book) such as projects, readings, or presentations where the students can see how the concept applies to their lives.

A student must earn a score of 70% or higher on the comprehensive final exam in order to earn a grade of C or better for the course and to advance to a GE level Math Course.
