This course covers using mathematical functions to solve real-world problems. The course reviews basic functions operations, composition of functions, and inverse functions before moving into function transformations and polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions. This is the first course in a two-part precalculus series (PRECALC 041 and PRECALC 043).
Students must have access to a graphing calculator.
Prerequisite:
