This course is intended for all students-first-year students and upperclassmen-who want to strengthen their basic arithmetic and algebraic skills, and to understand the central concepts of elementary mathematics. Topics will include: signed numbers, fractions, decimals, percentages, exponents, logarithms, scientific notation, polynomials, algebraic fractions, linear and quadratic equations, and graphing. Concepts will be stressed in classroom lectures and discussions; techniques will be developed through daily assignments.

Evaluation will be based primarily on performance on quizzes and exams.

- Prerequisite: permission of the instructor.
Depending on his or her performance on the diagnostic test administered at the beginning of the academic year, a student may be required to take Mathematics 100 or Mathematics 101 as a prerequisite for Biology 101, Chemistry 101, 102, Computer Science 134, 135, Mathematics 102, 103, 140, or Physics 131. However a student need not be planning to take one of these additional courses in order to take Mathematics 100 or 101.
