Enroll in Mathematics for College Success with Dolphin STEM Academy
Mathematics for College Success is a comprehensive review of mathematical
concepts designed to prepare you for the math you’ll experience in college. It includes
concepts from algebra, advanced algebra, geometry, and probability and statistics and
teaches them as interrelated disciplines. You’ve likely studied many of the topics that
are presented, but some topics might be new to you.
In Mathematics for College Success, you’ll review operations on rational
numbers and how to build and solve equations and inequalities that represent real-world
problems. You will investigate different types of functions and their graphs. You’ll
simplify polynomial and rational expressions using a variety of operations and properties
of exponents, and you’ll solve quadratic equations using factoring and the quadratic
formula. Finally, you will apply your understanding of linear relationships to represent
and interpret two-way statistical data.
This course will help you meet these goals:
• Use variables to represent unknown quantities.
• Use proportional relationships to solve ratio and percent problems.
• Perform operations with rational numbers.
• Convert between scientific notation and standard notation.
• Write and solve equations and inequalities that represent real-world situations.
• Perform operations with monomial, binomial, and other polynomial expressions.
• Graph linear equations and inequalities on a coordinate plane.
• Find the slope and intercepts of a linear equation.
• Develop a linear equation by looking at its graph.
• Solve and graph systems of linear equations.
• Write and combine functions to represent situations or word problems.
• Simplify expressions using the product rule, the quotient rule, and the power rule of
• Solve quadratic expressions by factoring and applying the quadratic formula.
• Identify the intercepts and vertex of a parabola.
• Alter the coefficients of a quadratic equation to transform its graph.
• Graph general piecewise functions and absolute value functions.
• Simplify polynomial and rational expressions.
• Solve rational, radical, and literal equations.
• Prove and use polynomial identities and the Binomial Theorem.
