Course Outline for Integrated Algebra and Geometry II
This course is the second in a two-part sequence covering elementary algebra topics. Students will extend
their basic algebra skills to include simplifying, performing operations with, and solving equations
involving square roots. Systems of equations will be solved graphically and algebraically. The quadratic
formula and graphing a quadratic equation will be introduced. Application problems will include the use
of the Theorem of Pythagoras. After successfully completing this course, students should register for
intermediate algebra. The course is taught using compute-assisted instruction. You must plan to spend
extra time on campus in our open computer labs.
Prerequisite: MATH 064
