At the completion of this course the student will have acquired  the following mathematical skills:

  • to use functions and their representations to model and summarize data.
  • to solve liner equations graphically, numerically, and symbolically.
  • to solve nonlinear equations, including quadratic, polynomial, and rational functions.
  • to graph, evaluate and solve exponential and logarithmic functions.
  • to verify trigonometric identities and to solve trigonometric equations.
  • to apply right angle trigonometry to technical problems.
  • to evaluate trigonometric functions for any angle.
  • to identify and sketch trigonometric functions.
  • to use analytic geometry to describe the straight line and conic sections ---circle, parabola, ellipse and hyperbola
