# MATH 0090 Learning Support Mathematics

This course uses the modular approach to emphasize in-depth arithmetic skills, basic and intermediate algebra skills. Topics include number theory, whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, ratio/proportion, measurement, geometry, application problems, introduction to real numbers, algebraic expressions, solving linear equations, graphs of linear equations, polynomial operations, polynomial factoring, inequalities, rational expressions and equations, linear graphs, slope, systems of equations, radical expressions and equations, and quadratic equations, and applications involving previously listed topics. Students progress at their own pace to master each module.

**Note:** This course is a co-requisite course that with few exceptions will be taken during the same semester as either Math 1012 (for non-degreed programs) or Math 0098 (for degreed programs).

Only those students whose test scores indicated non-program ready in mathematics and whose program does not require a math course will take only Math 0090. The topics covered by the Math 0090/1012 co-requisite students will include number theory, whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, ratio/proportion, measurement and conversion, geometry, technical applications, and basic statistics. The topics covered by the Math 0090/0098 co-requisite students will include introduction to real numbers, algebraic expressions, solving linear equations, graphs of linear equations, polynomial operations, polynomial factoring, inequalities, rational expressions and equations, linear graphs, slope, systems of equations, radical expressions and equations, and quadratic equations, and applications involving previously listed topics.
