The purpose of this course is to enhance basic mathematical skills and to prepare students for subsequent mathematics courses. This course is a prerequisite for those who do not qualify for enrollment in Math 110, Math 131, or Math 133. Students entering Union College (any freshman or those transfer students without a transferable mathematics course) with a Math ACT score of 18 or less will be placed in this course. The topics of the course will include, but are not limited to: fractions, decimals, and percents; operations with real numbers, including hierarchy of operations, exponents, roots, and radicals; polynomial arithmetic with emphasis on factoring; solving linear equations and linear inequalities; formula manipulation; and word problems involving any of these topics. This course does not satisfy General Education Requirements in mathematics. This course may not be used to satisfy distributional requirements for any other major program or area.
