MAT 0993 BEGINNING ALGEBRA

MAT 0993 is a 3 credit course which carries no degree credit.  There are two options: 1) a computer-based course meeting in the Mathematics Computer Lab (MCL).   Each student must complete a minimum of three hours per week in the MCL in addition to attending the two-hour regular class meeting or 2) the Rising Scholars Program

 

Topics

  • Review of arithmetic, integers, fractions, decimals, percents, ratios.
  • Algebra: solving equations and inequalities, algebraic expressions, graphing, problem solving.

 

Prerequisites

MAT 0993 is the first course in the Wayne State Developmental Mathematics program.  Students should take the Mathematics Placement Exam  to determine their current level of mathematical knowledge.  Students may enroll in MAT 0993 without taking the Placement Exam, but this is not recommended.

 

Materials Fee - Computer-based course only

The fee, which is part of the tuition, covers the cost of access to MyMathLab.  This gives the student access to all course materials, including the textbook, videos, homework, quizzes, and tests.

 

Grades

ANC, BNC, CNC, UNC. [ NC stands for "no credit" since this course carries no degree credit. ] Successful completion of this course (CNC or higher) qualifies the student to enroll in MAT 0995, MAT 1000, or MAT 1050. This prerequisite is valid for one year (three semesters).
