Exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions, complex numbers, theory of equations.
We will be covering topics from College Algebra and Trigonometry in order to prepare you for Calculus. We’ll take a look at functions and their graphs, concentrating on polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions. Along the way, we’ll review techniques for simplifying expressions and solving equations involving these functions, as well as considering applications of them. Throughout the course, I’ll try to point out shortcomings in our study of functions that can be remedied using Calculus to give you some idea of what to expect from your next math class!
