# MATH& 141 - Precalculus I

5.0 Credits
General nature of functions. Linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Applications.
Prerequisite MATH 097 with a minimum grade of 2.0 or appropriate placement.
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

1. Solve problems involving the concept of a function and the related concepts of domain, range, symmetry, composition, and inverses using functions given in graphical, symbolic, or numerical form.
2. Graph (with and without the aid of technology) linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions and interpret these graphs, identifying, locating, and communicating important graphical features.
3. Use algebra to determine the real and complex zeros of polynomial and rational functions and be able to relate this information to their graphs.
4. Solve equations and inequalities involving involving linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions using both graphical and algebraic methods, as well as technology.
5. Use the aforementioned functions to model situations described in words and solve applied problems.
6. Correctly use mathematical notation and language related to the concepts mentioned above.
