### Developmental Arithmetic with Algebra

Developmental Arithmetic with Algebra (3.0 Credit) is a course designed for students who need to strengthen their mathematical background. The course must be passed with a minimum grade of "C" and is not intended to satisfy general education requirements in mathematics or to count toward required hours for graduation. Calculators are allowed in the course. Topics included operations with integers, fractions, decimals, geometric figures and their measures, pre-algebra topics, including properties of rational numbers, operations of fractional numbers, simplification of polynomials, and equations–solving techniques.
