MATH 098 builds on the Essentials of Intermediate Algebra introduced in MATH 097 . The more technical skills covered in MATH 098 are important for student success in Precalculus (MATH& 141 ) and Finite Math (MATH 111 ). Topics covered include: solving equations by factoring; simplifying and solving rational expressions and equations; simplifying and solving exponential and radical expressions and equations; using function notation; analysis of quadratic functions; and review of linear functions. Applications are drawn from the sciences, finance, business, and the social sciences. MATH 098 serves as a prerequisite to MATH 111  and MATH& 141 .
