Pre-Calculus - MA1104 Semesters A & B

Course Description

This is a full year course that is broken down into two 0.50 (half) credit semesters.

With an emphasis on function families and their representations, Pre-calculus is a thoughtful introduction to advanced studies leading to calculus. The course briefly reviews linear equations, inequalities, and systems and moves purposefully into the study of functions. Students then discover the nature of graphs and deepen their understanding of polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Scaffolding rigorous content with clear instruction, the course leads students through an advanced study of trigonometric functions, matrices, and vectors. The course concludes with a short study of probability and statistics.
