MTH:025Hands-On Algebra Workshop3

The purpose of Hands-On Algebra Workshop is to help students who have experienced great difficulty with mathematics in general and algebra in particular. Working individually and in small groups, students use various mathematics manipulatives in a guided discovery mode to explore algebraic concepts in order to gain an understanding of integers, linear equations, polynomials, graphing, and functions. In this hands-on lab course, students proceed at their own pace. This course does not replace Elementary Algebra. Prerequisites: MTH 020 with grade of "C" or better or satisfactory score on the placement test and an appropriate score in Reading and English on the placement test. All prerequisite courses must have been completed within the last 3 years.
