# MATH 061 Basic Algebra and Geometry

Topics include solving first degree equations, solving and graphing linear inequalities on a number line and graphing linear equations. Developing fluency with fractions and the ability to solve problems involving percentages, unit conversions, proportions, perimeter, area, the Pythagorean Theorem, distance formula, and midpoint formula is emphasized. All sections require the use of the interactive computer program that comes with the software code. Use of a calculator is limited to a four-function calculator.
