The course objective is to master precalculus concepts through three approaches: geometric, numerical and algebraic. Those concepts will be applied to practical problems and prepare students for success with calculus.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Solve and graph equations with exponential functions and logarithms
  • Graph 1- and 2- variable inequalities and absolute value inequalities
  • Solve linear equations with one and two variables
  • Factor quadratic equations
  • Evaluate and graph piecewise functions
  • Solve visualizing geometry problems
  • And use the double angle formula
  • Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to determine the domain and range of functions
  • Evaluate compound inequalities and systems of inequalities
  • Solve problems with the Pythagorean theorem
