Mth 111Z Precalculus I: Functions

A course primarily designed for students preparing for trigonometry or calculus. This course focuses on functions and their properties, including polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, piecewise-defined, and inverse functions. These topics will be explored symbolically, numerically, and graphically in real-life applications and interpreted in context. This course emphasizes skill building, problem-solving, modeling, reasoning, communication, connections with other disciplines, and the appropriate use of present-day technology. This is the first course in a sequence of two: Mth 111Z and Mth 112Z, which must be taken in sequence.
