Intermediate Algebra Part 2

This course is a continuation of Intermediate Algebra 1, 20-804-202. Students expand their understanding of the structure of the real numbers (their construction, operations and properties); perform algebraic operations on rational and radical expressions; solve rational and radical equations; solve inequalities; solve absolute value equalities and inequalities; solve systems of three equations in three variables using the methods of substitution, addition (elimination), matrices and determinants; study complex numbers (their construction, operations and properties); solve second degree equations and inequalities in one variable; graph quadratic equations; solve exponential and logarithmic equations; understand and use functional notation and the arithmetic of functions; and solve application problems relative to the above topics. Transferability: upon successful completion of this course and 20-804-202, Intermediate Algebra 1, four credit hours of Intermediate Algebra are available for transfer.
