Course Description: ❖ Pre-Calculus: Introduction to Functions including Polynomials, rational functions, exponential function, logarithmic function and trigonometric functions, sequence and series, basic concept of limit in calculus ❖ Students will be expected to learn the general concept of functions and demonstrate an understanding of materials of Pre-Calculus beyond the manipulation of symbols by applying the techniques of Pre-Calculus to practical problems. General Objectives: Student Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to ❖ handle functions ❖ evaluate and graph functions ❖ perform computations and apply strategies for simplifying expressions, functions and equations and inequalities ❖ transform rectangular coordinate to polar coordinate and do basic calculations ❖ Understand the definition of sequence and series ❖ Apply the knowledge of sequence and series to models ❖ Understand vectors in two and three dimensions and do basic computations ❖ Do basic computations in conic section ❖ write detailed solutions using appropriate mathematical language ❖ identify areas in mathematics and other fields where Pre-Calculus is useful ❖ Learn concept of limit ❖ analyze problems from reality by using the techniques of Pre-Calculus
