advanced math course for credit e g MTH 121 131 141 or MTH 115 you are not eligible to take this course Course Description This course reviews pre calculus algebra and trigonometry emphasizing functions transformations combinations and composite functions Topics include graphing and applications of linear inverse quadratic polynomial and rational functions limits and the derivatives exponential and logarithmic functions and applications and trigonometric functions emphasizing sine and cosine Core Learning Outcomes Upon completion of this course students will be able to master the algebraic and trigonometric tools and higher order thinking skills necessary for success in future mathematics courses while building confidence in their mathematical abilities Students will gain an increased knowledge of the topics of algebra and trigonometry and learn how these can be applied to solve problems By the end of this course students should be able to Understand how to graph polynomials including quadratics rational exponential logarithmic and trigonometric functions by determining roots end behavior x intercept y intercept asymptotes etc where appropriate Apply the appropriate properties of logarithmic expressions to simplify expressions and solve equations Model data sets to predict future outcomes Evaluate trigonometric function of any angle exact value where applicable in radians and degrees by applying appropriate identities and or formulas Verify trigonometric identities by applying appropriate identities Solve trigonometric equations by using appropriate identities and or formulas Find limits using tables graphs and properties of limits Determine the continuity of a function at a point using limits ULC 148 2019 P a g e 1 UB Portfolio If
