This course is a study of numerical, analytical, and graphical properties of functions. The course content includes polynomial, rational, irrational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions. Additional topics include: inverse functions, complex numbers, polar coordinates, matrices, conic sections, sequences, series and the binomial theorem. This course is designed as a preparation for calculus and is intended for the transfer student planning to major in mathematics, engineering, economics, or disciplines included in the physical or life sciences.
The following problems illustrate concepts that a student entering Math 141 should already be familiar with. Read through each of the problems and then decide if this level seems appropriate for you. Note: All problems are intended to be done without any resources, except for pencil and paper.
