This course continues the development of the fundamental skills required for the successful completion of studies in college level mathematics courses. Topics include exponents and radicals, algebraic manipulation involving polynomial and rational forms, and unit analysis. Study skills will be incorporated throughout the course. Credit earned does not count towards any degree, nor does it transfer.

This course is the second of a two course sequence designed to prepare you for College Algebra. For this course, you will need to be familiar with the contents of the first four chapters of the course text. These chapters are covered in Math 92. This course serves as the prerequisite for Math 103, College Algebra.

The main topics in Math 93 are:

  • factoring
  • radials and exponents
  • arithmetic with polynomials
  • arithmetic with rational expressions
  • unit analysis

There are three keys to success in algebra:

  1. Practice
  2. More practice
  3. And most important, even more practice
