INTEGRATED ARITHMETIC AND ALGEBRA
COURSE DESCRIPTION: (750 characters, maximum) A course designed to satisfy the requirements of both MAT 0012 and MAT 0024 in one semester. Topics to be studied include arithmetic with whole numbers, integers & rational numbers, linear equations and inequalities in one variable, factoring, laws of exponents, and basic linear graphing. Problem solving involving reallife scenarios is an integral part of this course. This course will teach students to understand and communicate concepts of algebra in the language of mathematics, both orally and written. This course helps prepare students for collegelevel mathematics and mathbased courses. It is nontransferable. Due to the nature of this course, calculators are not permitted. To pass the course, students must pass a mandatory Florida State Examination.
