MAT 171 Precalculus Algebra
This is designed to develop topics which are fundamental to the study of Calculus. Emphasis is placed on solving equations and inequalities, solving systems of equations and inequalities, and functions (absolute value, radical, polynomica, rational, exponential, and logarithmic) in multiple representations. Upon completion, students should be able to select and use appropriate models and techniques for finding solutions to algebra-related problems with and without technology. This course has been approved for transfer under the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement as a general education course in Mathematics.
