COURSE CONTENT
==============
OUTCOME AND OBJECTIVES:
1. Comprehend, distinguish, and reproduce the behaviors and
characteristics of polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic
and trigonometric functions and their graphs.
2. Select and execute appropriate strategies to solve various types of
equations and inequalities both symbolically and graphically.
3. Perform advanced operations with functions (using symbolic and
graphical representations) and apply knowledge to modeling problems.
4. Choose and employ a suitable matrixrelated technique in solving
systems of linear equations.
5. Compare and contrast the standard forms of the conic sections, and
develop these forms from a general seconddegree equation in two
variables.
6. Recognize arithmetic and geometric patterns in sequences and series.
