Advanced topics in algebra, functions and graphs, inverse functions, composite functions, polynomial and rational functions, trigonometry, exponential and logarithmic functions. This is a full year class.
This course provides essential concepts for the study of calculus. Topics: concepts in analytic geometry; algebraic functions; transcendental functions, such as exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; graph analysis; and applications.
This course offers a thorough introduction to the topics required for calculus. Topics include: real and complex numbers, algebra of functions, the fundamental theorem of algebra, trigonometry, logarithms and exponential functions, conic sections, and the use of graphic calculators.
This course is intended as a preparation for the study of calculus. Functions and their graphs will be analyzed theoretically within a framework that emphasizes their appearance in applied settings. Particular attention will be placed on polynomical, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric models. The use of graphing utilities as analytical tools will be emphasized. Each student is required to have a graphing calculator.
Polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions with applications to problems in mathematics and the sciences.
