CATALOG DESCRIPTION: |
(C, N, S) (4, 0) 4 Credits The first course in a two-semester sequence of college algebra and trigonometry. The sequence is preparatory for an introductory or survey level of calculus. Basic Algebra skills are reviewed and extended. Functions, in general, and their inverses are studied along with the properties, graphs and transformations of linear, quadratic absolute value, radical rational, logarithmic and exponential functions. Equations of the above functions as well as linear systems of equations and linear and absolute value inequalities are solved. Related application problems are incorporated throughout. Prerequisite: MT007 or MT013 or equivalent, and appropriate mathematics level code. Level code is determined by Mathematics Department placement test and/or successful completion of mathematics courses. |
