Algebraic Thinking for Science develops problem-solving and critical-thinking skills by using algebra and mathematics common to introductory science to solve context-based problems.  Problems are approached algebraically, graphically, numerically, and verbally.  Topics include scientific notation, dimensional analysis, proportional reasoning,  linear, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic functions, right-triangle trigonometry, and linear regression.  Collaborative learning is emphasized.   
This course meets the MiT college algebra requirement and meets requirements for entering Integrated Natural Sciences.  A graphing calculator is required for the course.
