#### Section Description

This three-credit course covers sets, relations, and functions with particular attention to properties of polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions, their graphs and applications. It may not be taken for credit concurrently with, or following receipt of, credit for any mathematics course numbered 19 or above. Upon successful completion of the course, students will be prepared to take Math 019—Fundamentals of Calculus I. Learning Objectives: After completing this course, students will be able to: • Solve linear equations and inequalities • Find the x and y-intercepts and the slope of a linear equation • Understand and use function notation • Identify the parent function for a variety of familiar functions and understand how that function can be transformed • Solve quadratic equations by factoring, completing the square and using the quadratic formula • Understand complex numbers as solutions to a certain type of quadratic equation • Solve rational and radical equations • Sketch the graph of a polynomial function • Use polynomial division to solve cubic and quartic equations • Find vertical and horizontal asymptotes for a rational equation • Identify which functions are invertible and know how to find the inverse of a function • Solve exponential and logarithmic equations • Solve a variety of application problems related to all types of functions studied in this course • Graph constant, linear, quadratic, cubic, exponential, logarithmic, rational and piecewise functions.
