This course continues the demonstration and examination of various algebra concepts that was begun in MTH 208: College Mathematics I. It assists in building skills for performing more complex mathematical operations and problem solving than in earlier courses. These concepts and skills should serve as a foundation for subsequent quantitative business coursework. Applications to real-world problems are emphasized throughout the course.
Use arithmetic and geometric sequences and series.
Use composite functions.
Use the distribution property with polynomials.
Perform polynomial operations.
Use polynomials in real-world applications.
Factor polynomials using the Greatest Common Factor.
Factor trinomial expressions of the form x2 + bx +c.
Factor trinomial expressions of the form ax2 + bx +c.
Factor polynomial expressions using special products.
Quadratic Equations and Functions
Identify the domain and range of a function.
Identify polynomial, rational, radical, and quadratic functions.
Perform operations on functions.
Solve quadratic equations.
Apply nonlinear equations to real-world problems.
Rational and Radical Expressions
Perform operations on rational expressions.
Solve rational equations and formulas.
Solve proportion and variation problems.
Simplify radical expressions.
Solve problems involving radical expressions.
