  • MATS1200 Concepts in Mathematics
  • Description
    MATS 1300 This course develops a student's ability to analyze and work with functions and graphs, as part of the preparation for a rigorous calculus sequence (taking this course together with MATS1320 is equivalent to precalculus). Topics include tests for symmetry, finding intercepts and asymptotes, constructing piece wise-defined functions, transformations, polynomial and rational functions, composite and inverse functiions, and exponential and logarithmic functions. Techniques for solving linear, quadratic, rational, radical, exponential and logarithmic equations (with applications) are emphasized throughout the course. Systems of linear equations and matrix algebra are introduced, after wich sequences and series are also briefly introduced. Meets MnTC Goal 4
