Content for the course will be organized as follows:
Live Zoom Classes  M, T, W  10:0010:50 am PST  Lecture style classes taught by your instructor. Also recorded so that video can be accessed by those who could not attend live session. 
Live Break Out Zoom Sessions  T, Th  Times will be arranged based on students’ scheduled choices on the first day of class  Small break out sections taught by Teaching Assistants (TAs) 
Posted Videos  M,T,W, Th  You will be required to watch 34 videos before each live Zoom class. These will be made available at least one week in advance so that you are able to watch them at your convenience.  Created and posted by your instructor to preview or review material discussed in class. Will be available throughout the course. 
Description of the Course
This course is specifically designed for students majoring in STEM careers (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). The goal of this semester is to increase students’ procedural fluency and conceptual understanding of the basic concepts that they will see when they take precalculus.

Student Learning Objectives
This course is intended to prepare you for Math 141 by addressing the following Student Learning
Outcomes:
 Students will develop foundational understandings of variables 1. in expressions and equations.
 Students will be able to identify common misconceptions regarding arithmetic and algebraic
manipulations of monomials, polynomials, integer and rational exponents, rational expressions,
and factoring.  Students will explore concepts of geometry related to threedimensional solids, line
segments, and triangles.  Students will be able to graph circles and identify properties such as center and radius.
Students will also be able to write equations of circles in standard form (this includes using
the method of completing the square).  Students will be able to make sense of situations that involve linear or quadratic relations,
develop strategies to find appropriate linear and quadratic models, and persevere in graphing
them and interpreting the meaning of their solutions.  Students will develop the ability to describe their thinking using appropriate and precise
mathematical language and critique the reasoning of others.
