MAT 003 Pre-calculus
This course is intended solely for those students who wish to take calculus, but whose high school background is inadequate to do so immediately. Topics covered include review of algebra (solving equations and inequalities, simplification of algebraic expressions) and properties of elementary functions (polynomials, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions) with special emphasis on graphing these functions. For students who desire a distribution credit in mathematics but do not wish to take calculus, Mathematics 107, 109, and 119 are recommended. Mathematics 003 can not be used for distribution.
Admission to Mathematics 003 is by permission of the department chair only.
