Intermediate Algebra Module 3

XMAT Sequence

Topics covered in XMAT163-1 are related to algebraic expressions and solving equations. Techniques for multiplying, dividing and simplifying algebraic expressions are explored. Radical expressions are studied and used in equations. The quadratic formula is developed. ​

The XMAT sequence is an upgrading course that is an excellent stepping stone for anyone who wants to further their math education and has not completed Pre-Calculus 11. XMAT prepares you to enter UNBC MATH 115 Pre-Calculus (an equivalent of Pre-Calculus 12). Specifically XMAT should be taken by anyone who has taken Foundations Math or Apprenticeship and Workplace Math streams in high school and wishes to enter programs that use mathematical thinking such as nursing, business, economics, geography, physical sciences and mathematics. The XMAT sequence can be used for credit at UNBC and is an introduction to what a university course is like. The content is used in many degree programs at university.
