This course is taught so that students will acquire a solid foundation
in algebra and trigonometry. The course concentrates on the various
functions that are important to the study of the calculus. Emphasis is
placed on understanding the properties of linear, piece-wise,
exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions. Students will
learn to work with various types of functions in symbolic, graphical,
numerical and verbal form.
This course will be taught over ten weeks, with materials released on a weekly basis. Below you will find the weekly topic schedule.
