In the context of studying a large library of basic functions and their graphs, students strengthen and expand their algebra skills. The library includes linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, radical, exponential, and logarithmic functions, as well as inverse functions and the absolute value function. Particular emphasis is placed on the operations on functions, as well as solving equations and inequalities. Other topics include solving systems of equations, operations on complex numbers, and applications.

Note: Mathematics 80 serves as a prerequisite course for the first courses in the Business and Social Sciences (MATH 130 ) and STEM calculus (MATH 170 ) sequences as well as MATH 110 MATH 115 , MATH 120 , MATH 130 , MATH 140  and MATH 150 .
