This course introduces students to trigonometric concepts of polar and parametric functions, vectors, conic sections, and logistic modeling. Linear, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, and polynomial functions, as well as matrices will also be studied in depth. In addition, the course provides a solid foundation for calculus by expanding students’ understanding of the usefulness of data models, honing their ability to make sense of data tables and symbolic expressions, and establish fluency with symbol manipulation techniques. Students will examine both algebraic and non-algebraic functions and relationships, including exponential, logarithmic, composite, rational, and trigonometric. Such functions are used in many scientific endeavors and occupations.
