 MTH 219 Week 1 Course Introduction and Week 1 Overview

Welcome to MTH/219: Introduction to College Algebra!

Students enter this course with many different backgrounds in math. Your classmates range from people who just finished high school algebra to people who may not have used algebra in over 30 years. It is important to get off to a good start by putting in a strong effort early. Depending on your math background, this could require you putting in more time and effort than you might be used to in other classes.

The purpose of this week is to give you a solid foundation in the algebraic skills necessary for the entire course. This includes order of operations and the other skills necessary to solve linear equations and inequalities. It is important to spend time ensuring you have mastered this week’s objectives because the skills needed for this week will be used throughout the rest of this course.

It is normal in Week 1 for some students to feel a bit overwhelmed because math is very different than the other subjects you will be learning throughout your degree program. However, you have a strong support system to help you through the journey including your faculty member, tutors, textbook, videos, classmates, and live events available to help you whenever you need assistance. With enough determination, hard work, and taking advantage of the support available, you can succeed in this course!
