Math 1 is a course in Basic Math, offered by the department of Basic Sciences. It is a 2-credit-hour course with 4 contact hours per week (over 8 weeks). Taught in English, The course provides an intensive study on Basic Math, which is fundamental to the study of related technical subjects. Emphasis is placed on many topics (Decimals and Percentage, Algebra and Equations, Lines and Inequalities, Functions and Graphs, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions). On the completion of the course, the student will be able to:

  • Compute percentage and flawlessly do calculations, applying decimals and fractions.
  • Solve linear, quadratic, and absolute value equations.
  • Solve linear inequalities.
  • Find equations of, and graphing, lines and circles.
  • Recognize functions, including composition of functions and inverse functions, and their application as mathematical models.
  • Use the properties of exponential and logarithmic functions and their application to solve equations.
