# MATH 50 - Pre-Algebra

The following are the Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) and Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs) for MATH 50. A Student Learning Outcome is a measurable outcome statement about what a student will think, know, or be able to do as a result of an educational experience. Course Measurable Objectives focus more on course content, and can be considered to be smaller pieces that build up to the SLOs.

**Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)**

- Math 50 students will be able to simplify expressions.
- Math 50 students will be able to solve a linear equation.
- When performing a problem, Math 50 students will present a logical, step-by-step argument, leading to a correct conclusion.

**Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs)**

- Demonstrate mastery of relevant vocabulary and notation.
- Use the order of operations to simplify any arithmetic problem involving whole numbers, integers and rational numbers in both fraction and decimal form.
- Simplify algebraic expressions with any rational number coefficient (includes the ability to evaluate algebraic expressions and formulas involving any rational number.)
- Determine factors and divisibility of any integer, identify prime numbers and determine the least common multiple of any combination of whole numbers.
- Solve any linear equation with rational coefficients and apply this ability in solving word problems.
- Evaluate ratios and percents, convert between percent and rational numbers and solve equations and applications involving proportions and percents.
- Find perimeter and area of geometric figures.
- Simplify and approximate square roots and use them in application of the Pythagorean Theorem.
- Plot points and graph equations in two variables.
