# HSC 087 - Bridges Math

Maximum of 10.0 possible Credits
Students learn contextualized math skills in Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry. Topics include building and interpreting functions (linear, quadratic, and exponential); writing, solving, and reasoning with equations and inequalities; summarizing, representing, and interpreting data; and analyzing complex number systems, polynomials, statistics, probability, and logarithms. The course curriculum emphasizes modeling with mathematics and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice. S/U grade option.
Prerequisite Successful completion of high school Algebra 1, MATH 077, or advisor placement. Orientation and advising are required before taking this course.
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

1. Write expressions and use units to solve systems of equations.
2. Represent relationships and solve equations and inequalities graphically.
3. Interpret, summarize, and represent linear models and solve problems involving slope-intercept methods.
4. Build a function and use function notation that models a relationship between two variables.
5. Perform arithmetic operations on polynomials and rational expressions.
6. Construct and compare quadratic and exponential models using logarithims or technology.
7. Make inferences and justify conclusions on statistical data from random processes, surveys, models, and studies.
