MATH 112 Topics in Precalculus Mathematics [GEQR]
Provides a thorough preparation for calculus for students who are insufficiently prepared in college algebra and trigonometry or who need to review these subjects. Emphasis will be on topics from college algebra and trigonometry that are used in calculus.
Credit 4 hrs May not be repeated for additional credit
Grade Mode Normal (A-F) Course Rotation Fall and Winter
Prerequisites - Level 5 Math Placement or MATH 105
Restriction by Major -
Restriction by Class - Undergraduate standing
Additional Information - Some knowledge of trigonometry is assumed. For more information about this course, review the course outline .
Rationale for Quantitative Reasoning - The focus of MATH 112 is on the important families of functions used in calculus, their properties, and their applications. Students will learn to use functions to model physical phenomena, and catalog of functions - linear, power, quadratic, polynomial, rational, absolute value. exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric. By the end of the course, students will know the basic properties and graphs of all of these families of functions, and will know how to use them as models for real-world applications.
