MATH-143
College Algebra
Credit(s): 3
MATH 143 begins by taking a deeper look at the definition of functions, their properties and notation in both an algebraic and graphical context. The course then focuses on the study of equations and graphs of polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Additional topics include conic sections and sequences. This course prepares students for MATH 160. The combination of MATH 143 followed by MATH 144 may be used in place of MATH 147 as the prerequisite for MATH 170. MATH 143 satisfies the math requirement for the A.A., A.S., and A.A.S. degrees. Note: MATH 143 carries no credit if taken after successful completion of any higher numbered Math course with the exception of MATH 148. Lecture: 3 hours per week
Prerequisites:
Entry is based on an appropriate score on the placement test, either COMPASS Algebra > 61, ACT Math > 23, SAT Math > 540 or a grade of C- or above in MATH-108.
MATH-143D
College Algebra-Computer Aided Drafting Applications
Credit(s): 1
MATH 143D is a lab/recitation course for students in the Computer Aided Design Technology program. This course includes radian measure, applications of right triangle trigonometry, areas of triangles, Laws of Sines and Cosines, and vectors. Mathematical modeling with drafting emphasis is stressed. Lecture/Recitation: 1 hours per week
Prerequisites:
MATH-108, MATH-143 (may also be a corequisite) or successful completion of two years of high school algebra and an appropriate score on the placement test.
Corequisites:

MATH-143E
College Algebra-Electronics Applications
Credit(s): 1
MATH 143E is a lab/recitation course for students in the Electronic Technology program. This course includes radian measure, applications of right triangle trigonometry, graphs of trigonometric functions, complex numbers, polar coordinates, and vectors. Mathematical modeling with electronics emphasis is stressed. Lecture/Recitation: 1 hours per week
Prerequisites:
Complete MATH-108 with a minimum grade of C-, an appropriate test score, or successful completion of two years of high school algebra.
Corequisites:
MATH-143
