Course Description

MATH-123, Precalculus Part 1: College Algebra with Trigonometry, provides the foundation to be successful in chemistry, physics, engineering and advanced mathematics. The precalculus and calculus sequences are intended for future mathematics/science/engineering majors. Topics include the real number system; algebraic expressions; equations and inequalities in one variable; relations and functions; analysis of
polynomial, power, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric funtions and their
graphs. Problems will be solved through analytic, numerical, and graphical approaches with an emphasis on setting up and solving relevant application problems. Students who need to take MATH-135, Calculus of a Single Variable 1, will need to complete both Precalculus Part 1 and Precalculus Part 2 in a year-long sequence, or the rigorous one-semester MATH-130 course. Prerequisites: exemption/completion of READ A-F and a satisfactory score on the math placement exam or MAT-099 with a "C" grade or better. Credit by exam available. Graphing calculator required. See Mathematics Department website for details. Four hours lecture each week. Four credits. Four billable hours. GENERAL EDUCATION
