MATH 71X - Practice Intermediate Algebra

The following are the Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) and Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs) for MATH 71X. A Student Learning Outcome is a measurable outcome statement about what a student will think, know, or be able to do as a result of an educational experience. Course Measurable Objectives focus more on course content, and can be considered to be smaller pieces that build up to the SLOs.

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)

  1. Students are able to set up and solve applied problems of proportionality.
  2. Students are able to apply dimensional analysis to unit conversions.
  3. Students are able to isolate variables in algebraic and logarithmic equations.
  4. Students are able to apply least squares methods to model relationships between variables in real-world applications.

Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs)

  1. Demonstrate in writing changes of units and other applications of ratios and proportions. 
  2. Isolate variables in equations of linear, quadratic, rational, radical, exponential and logarithmic forms. 
  3. Model real-world phenomena using least-squares methods for data which approximate linear, quadratic, rational, radical, exponential and logarithmic functions. 
  4. Apply algebraic analysis to functions described above and give real-world meaning to intercepts, slope, asymptotes, and extrema. 
  5. Use infinite series to model and quantify real world phenomena. 
  6. Use data gathering instruments to sample data for curve fitting.
