Introduction to the basic properties of real numbers, variables, equations,

algebraic expressions, functions and their graphs. This includes evaluation

of expressions and formulas; translation from words to symbols; solutions

of linear equations and inequalities; absolute value; powers and roots;

solving two linear equations in two unknowns; real world applications.

who pass will automatically be transferred to MATH 032, which meets at

the same time; students who do not pass will remain enrolled in MATH

031. Satisfactory completion of this course fulfills the prerequisite for
enrollment

in Intermediate Algebra. ABC/no credit grading only. This course

is designated remedial and does not count as credit toward the bachelor’s

degree, although the units may be applied to financial aid minimum

requirements. (005493)
