MATH 0106 - Pre-Algebra NCBO

Credit Hours: 1
Contact Hours - Lab: 1
A non-course based option designed for students who need to master a subset of the prerequisite learning outcomes. Topics may include basic arithmetic operations on integers and rational numbers, order of operations, introduction to basic geometric concepts, simplification of algebraic expressions and techniques of solving simple linear equations. This course carries institutional credit but will not transfer and will not meet degree requirements. CIP Code: (3201045519)
Prerequisite: Placement by Testing Corequisite: MATH 0308
