Role in Curriculum

MTH 123 is a college algebra / trigonometry class that provides mathematical skills necessary for
further success in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), business and teaching
majors. It satisfies the general education requirement. Moreover, MTH 123 prepares the students for
the next level of courses in mathematics, usually pre-calculus. The prerequisite is MTH 030 or an
appropriate score on the CUNY proficiency/placement exam taken by many students who stop at Regents

Learning Goals and Assessment Plans

Learning GoalAssessment
Solve equations and manipulate expressions with
linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic and
trigonometric functions.
When the class is being assessed, the final exams
will include embedded questions to assess student
performance on these topic-specific learning
goals. Instructors will tally their students'
scores on these questions, and will forward this
data to the chair of the department pre-major
curriculum committee
Analyze graphs of linear, quadratic, exponential,
logarithmic and trigonometric functions.
Solve application problems using these functions.same

When assessment activities are done, the results will be summarized in memorandum form and filed with the department chairperson for record keeping

Information obtained from assessment will be used to assess and self-reflect on the success of the course and to make any necessary changes to
improve teaching and learning effectiveness.
