This course will help students refine and extend fluency with algebraic skills. Additionally, the focus of this course is on the conceptual understanding of functions. The course makes the case for using functions to model physical phenomena and simultaneously teaches methods to analyze these functions in a meaningful way. The course presents a catalog of functions - linear, power, quadratic, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential and logarithmic functions. By the end of the course, students should know the basic properties and graphs of these functions along with using them as models for real-world applications. For these reasons, MATH 105 will count for the Quantitative Reasoning [GEQR] requirement in the General Education program.
