An intensive study of advanced algebra and trigonometry. Topics include: linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions, modeling and graphing these functions, and the effects of affine transformations on the graphs of functions. This course prepares students for the study of Calculus I (MTH 151 or MTH 153), which is required for majors in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering and Mathematical/Computational Biology. This course fulfills the general Calculus I prerequisites for Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering and Mathematical/Computational Biology majors who matriculated prior to Fall 2012 and has been approved by University Studies Curriculum for students matriculating in Fall 2012 or later.
Introduction to exploratory data analysis using R, including graphical techniques, confirmatory statistics, interval estimates, hypothesis tests, bootstrap estimates.
This course is a rigorous analysis of the concept of limits, continuity, the derivative and other selected areas.
