General Education Requirements

This section meets the following CCV General Education Requirement(s) for the current catalog year:
VSCS Mathematics
  1. Many degree programs have specific general education recommendations. In order to avoid taking unnecessary classes, please consult with additional resources like your program evaluation, your academic program catalog year page, and your academic advisor.
  2. Courses may only be used to meet one General Education Requirement.

Course Description

This course provides an in-depth study of algebra skills including algebraic laws, polynomials, exponents, linear equalities and inequalities, factoring, functions, set notation, graphing in the Cartesian Coordinate system, and applications. Students must take a math assessment for placement purposes prior to registration. Prerequisite: Math and Algebra for College or equivalent skills.

Essential Objectives

1. Solve and graph linear equations and inequalities.
2. Solve equations and inequalities involving absolute value.
3. Given information of a line, such as slope and intercept, find its equation.
4. Use proper set notation for solution sets.
5. Solve systems of linear equations and inequalities of two variables by graphing and using algebraic methods.
6. Perform all operations using polynomials and rational expressions.
7. Factor polynomials such as quadratic trinomials, quadratic binomials (special cases of trinomial factoring), higher order trinomials of the quadratic form, and cubic polynomials.
8. Apply properties of exponents (including positive, negative and fractional exponents) and radicals.
9. Define and graph functions including absolute value, quadratic, and square root.
10. Apply algebraic techniques and models in solving problems that occur in various fields of study.
11. Apply mathematical reasoning to analyze social justice problems in a variety of different contexts and consider whether these approaches are just and equitable.

The last day to use a Financial Aid Advance to purchase textbooks/books is the 3rd Tuesday of the semester. See your financial aid counselor at your academic center if you have any questions.


This course will consist of the following:

1. Lecture/discussion

2. Class participation

3. Homework assignments

4. Quizzes

5. Tests

Evaluation Criteria

I will evaluate your performance through tests, quizzes, and class participation/homework. An average grade of 60% or better is needed to pass this course. The distribution of your final grade is as follows: Tests: 25%, Quizzes: 25%, Class Paricipation/homework: 25%, Final Exam: 25%.Lastly, you MUST show all work on assessments for credit. You should not be using a calculator or other devices or applications to get answers. No work equals no credit when work is needed to get an answer even if the answer is correct.

Grading Criteria

CCV Letter Grades as outlined in the Evaluation System Policy are assigned according to the following chart:

A Less than 9893
A-Less than 9390
B+Less than 9088
B Less than 8883
B-Less than 8380
C+Less than 8078
C Less than 7873
C-Less than 7370
D+Less than 7068
D Less than 6863
D-Less than 6360
FLess than 60 
NPLess than 600

Attendance Policy

Regular attendance and participation in classes are essential for success in and are completion requirements for courses at CCV. A student's failure to meet attendance requirements as specified in course descriptions will normally result in a non-satisfactory grade.

  • In general, missing more than 20% of a course due to absences, lateness or early departures may jeopardize a student's ability to earn a satisfactory final grade.
  • Attending an on-ground or synchronous course means a student appeared in the live classroom for at least a meaningful portion of a given class meeting. Attending an online course means a student posted a discussion forum response, completed a quiz or attempted some other academically required activity. Simply viewing a course item or module does not count as attendance.
  • Meeting the minimum attendance requirement for a course does not mean a student has satisfied the academic requirements for participation, which require students to go above and beyond simply attending a portion of the class. Faculty members will individually determine what constitutes participation in each course they teach and explain in their course descriptions how participation factors into a student's final grade.

Participation Expectations

To be marked present each week you must complete and submit by the due date all assignments due that week.

The graded discussion assignments and the graded homework assignments are the basis for
the students' participation expectations in this online class.

Missing & Late Work Policy

All assignments are described in Canvas with due dates and times. Only assigments that have points associated with them need to be submitted. You have a week to complete all such assignments and they must be submitted on time via Canvas to earn credit. Missing and late work will not be accepted after the due dates.

Do not wait until the last minute or the last day to submit assignments on Canvas in case the internet goes down or you have other technical difficulties or of any unforeseen incident that may occur that prevents you from submitting assignments on Canvas by the deadline.

Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities:

CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please
  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center. https://ccv.edu/discover-resources/students-with-disabilities/
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.

Academic Integrity

CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
