# MATH 1314 - College Algebra

***This is a course guideline. Students should contact instructor for the updated information on current course syllabus, textbooks, and course content***

*This course was formerly MATH 1310*

Section number: This information applies to ALL sections

Delivery format: Hyflex/Online/face-to-face

Prerequisites: A satisfactory score on a placement examination.

Course Description: Quadratic equations, inequalities, logarithmic and exponential functions, graphs, elements of theory of equations, systems of equations. *Note: This course is designed to prepare students for Precalculus MATH 2312 (formerly 1330) and Calculus I MATH 2413 (formerly 1431) . Students with prior credit in MATH 2312 or MATH 2413 will not be allowed to enroll or receive credit in MATH 1314.

Textbook & Access Code: The textbook,online quizzes, and additional help materials will be made available by logging into CASA Campus Services (CCS) at https://ccs.casa.uh.edu/ . Students pay for access to CCS as part of their fee bill via CTAP. If one opts out of the CTAP, they can purchase an access code for this course at UH Bookstore. In this case, if the code is not entered by the deadline specified on CASA, students will lose access to CASA. No make ups will be given for assignments missed during the no-access period.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will:

• Demonstrate and apply knowledge of properties of functions, including domain and range, operations, compositions, and inverses.
• Recognize and apply polynomial, rational, radical, exponential and logarithmic functions and solve related equations.
• Apply graphing techniques.
• Evaluate all roots of higher degree polynomial and rational functions.
• Recognize, solve and apply systems of linear equations using matrices.
[Additional course curriculum details: In-depth study and applications of polynomial, rational, radical, exponential and logarithmic functions, and systems of equations using matrices. Additional topics such as sequences, series, probability, and conics may be included.]

A student in this class is expected to complete the following assignments:

• Regular Exams
• Final Exam
• Online Quizzes
• Homework – on each section of the textbook covered in class
• Poppers – in-class quizzes
