MTH 150: Precalculus
General Education requirement: 1D - Mathematics
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.
