## Required Core Courses

#### Lower Division Courses

### MATH 1115 Pre-Calculus

**Credits :**3

Pre-Calculus provides the concepts and skills that should be mastered before enrollment in a college-level calculus course. The students will study and explore the following types of mathematical functions: linear; polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric. In addition students develop problem solving and critical thinking skills.

**Learning Outcomes:**

- Illustrate linear inequalities in one variable.
- Solve quadratic equations.
- Identify functions, function notations, and graphs of a function.
- Analyze the graph of a function.
- Graph polynomial functions.
- Define the intermediate value theorem.
- Calculate exponential equations graphically.
- Distinguish the properties of logarithms.
- Interpret the trigonometry of real numbers.
- Explain the transformations and applications of trigonometric graphs.
- Describe the inverse trig functions and their applications
- Summarize the law of cosines.
- Calculate linear systems using matrix equations.
- Classify linear systems in two and three variables.
- Interpret nonlinear systems of equations and inequalities.
- Simplify computations for the rotation of axes.
- Integrate the course concepts through interaction with other Learners and your Mentor.
- Introduce self and explain course expectations.
- Evaluate information critically and competently.
