MATH 108 - ~Pre-Calculus (4)

This course is a one-semester preparation for calculus, which includes various algebra and trigonometry topics. Algebra topics include the analysis of linear, quadratic, polynomial, radical, rational, absolute value, piecewise, exponential and logarithmic functions and their graphs along with applications. Trigonometry topics include the study of angles using both the unit circle and right triangle approaches, verifying trigonometric identities, solving trigonometric equations, solving right and oblique triangles with applications, and analyzing the characteristics of trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions. Additional topics include complex numbers, systems of equations, partial fractions, conic sections, sequences, and series. As time permits, vectors, polar coordinates, mathematical induction, and limits may also be explored.

Prerequisite(s): MATH 105 - ~Algebra (3)  or proper placement on test scores
