Intermediate Algebra

Course No. MTH95 Credits: 4

Teacher Requirements for Articulating This Class
• Bachelor's degree in math or a closely related field (Science or Engineering are examples), a Master's
degree in math or a related field or an MAT with credits in upper division or graduate math courses is
preferred. If the teacher does not have Bachelor and/or Master degrees in math they should have a Math
or Advanced Math endorsement.

Grading Instructions for Awarding 2+2 Early College Credit
(Note that 2+2 courses do not all have the same evaluating/grading criteria.)
• Students must complete this high school course with a grade of “A” or “B” and achieve 80% of the
expected outcomes listed below in order to receive college credit by Rogue Community College.

• All students must take and pass the MTH95 Final Exam. Contact Dennis Kimzey (above) for details.

Registration Process*
 Hold these forms until the end of the class. Please market the program to your students so they
know they are working toward college credit.

• Teacher Grade Roster – At the end of the term, 2+2 teachers complete the Teacher Grade Roster,
listing all students eligible for Early College Credit (A & B grade students only who have completed the required work).

• Staple Packet Together – Staple Student Registration Forms (for eligible students only – please do not
include forms for students earning ‘C’ or less) and Teacher Grade Roster together (roster on top please) and send to RCC.

Send - through the courier to BJ Taylor at RCC RVC-G building in Medford, or mail to BJ Taylor at 117 S.
Central, G221a, Medford, OR 97501.

Department Assignment: Mathematics

Department Mission Relationship: MTH95 reinforces traditional mathematics
concepts and learning techniques with current graphic calculator technology,
emphasizing technical reading/writing and creative thinking skills.

Course Description: Intermediate Algebra concludes the developmental
mathematics sequence. It includes an introduction to the study and
application of quadratic, polynomial, rational, radical, exponential and
logarithmic expressions and functions. Working with real data and the
mathematics of data fitting will be developed.

Course Objectives and SCANS* (Secretary's Commission on Achieving necessary
Skills) Competencies:
Upon successful completion of the course, students
should be able to:

Expected Outcomes: Assessment Methods :
1. Use mathematical problem solving
techniques involving quadratic,
rational, radical, exponential
and logarithmic expressions and
functions. These techniques
include data fitting and the use
of graphical, symbolic ,
narrative and tabular
representations.
1. Criterion referenced tests and
quizzes for specific vocabulary,
skills, concepts, and daily
problem assignments.
2. Create quadratic, square root ,
rational, exponential, and loga-
rithmic models of real world
situations.
2. Criterion referenced tests and
quizzes for specific vocabulary,
skills, concepts, and daily
problem assignments.
3. Use inductive reasoning to
develop mathematical conjectures
involving quadratic, square
root, rational, exponential, and
logarithmic models. Use
deductive reasoning to verify
and apply mathematical arguments
involving quadratic, square
root, exponential, and
logarithmic models.
3. Criterion referenced tests and
quizzes for specific vocabulary,
skills, concepts, daily problem
assignments, and in-class
observations.
4. Make mathematical connections
to, and solve problems from
other disciplines that can be
represented using quadratic,
rational, square root,
exponential, and logarithmic
models.
4. Criterion referenced tests and
quizzes for specific vocabulary,
skills, concepts, and project
completion and presentations.
5. Use oral and written skills to
individually and collaboratively
communicate about quadratic,
rational, square root,
exponential, and logarithmic
expressions and functions.
5. Criterion referenced tests and
quizzes for specific vocabulary,
skills, concepts, daily problem
assignments, in-class
observations, and project
completion and presentations.
6. Use appropriate technology to
enhance their mathematical
thinking and understanding of
and to solve quadratic, square
root, rational, exponential, and
logarithmic mathematical
problems and judge the
reasonableness of their results.
6. Criterion referenced tests and
quizzes for specific vocabulary,
skills, concepts, and daily
problem assignments.
7. Do projects that encourage
independent, nontrivial
exploration of situations best
modeled by quadratic, square
root, rational, exponential, and logarithmic equations and
functions
.
7. Project completion and
presentations.

Typical Required and Recommended Equipment and Materials: Graphic calculator
(TI-83 or TI-83/84 Plus or Silver Editions), pencil, paper and graph paper.
