**Description** | This course is a preparation for Calculus. Students will learn to analyze functions through algebraic evaluation, graphing, transformations, and solving both equations and inequalities. The definition of function will be emphasized. Functions studied will include linear, quadratic, rational, radical, logarithmic, exponential, inverse, circular, absolute value, and trigonometric. Emphasis will be placed on analyzing the properties of trigonometry, including trigonometric identities, laws and formulas. Students will also study the complex number system, operations and compositions of functions, systems of linear equations and basic concepts of limits. Lecture: 4 hours per week. Prerequisite: MA 098 or higher |
