Course Syllabus Summer 2010 Precalculus Instructor Contact Information Instructor: Dr. Bentley Garrett Office: ECSN 3.606 Phone: 972-883-4236 E-mail: or via eLearning (see section below)* Snailmailbox: EC 3.214 Office hours: MW 4:30-5:30 PM Course Pre-requisites, Co-requisites, and/or Other Restrictions Prerequisite: A SAT II Mathematics Level IC Test score of at least 550 or a grade of at least a C- in MATH 1314 and MATH 1316 or equivalent courses. Optional problem section Course Description Real numbers, subsets of real line, absolute value; algebra of functions, domain, range, composition, inverse; elements of analytical geometry including vectors in plane, conics, polar coordinates, translation and rotation of axes and related topics. Student Learning Objectives/Outcomes (1) Students will be able to formulate real world problems into mathematical statements. Given a narrative description of a problem that lends itself to mathematical analysis, the student will clearly define any variable quantities introduced and provide an appropriate formula or function relating those variables. (2) Students will be able to develop solutions to mathematical problems at the level appropriate to each course. Students will be able to explain the concept of a function and the inverse of a function, and in particular be able to determine the domain of either. Students will gain knowledge of exponential and logarithmic functions and work with the algebraic properties of each. Students will gain knowledge of trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions and work with trigonometric identities. Students will be able to use algebraic techniques for finding the zeros of various types of functions. These include functions containing polynomial, rational, radical, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric expressions. (3) Students will be able to describe or demonstrate mathematical solutions either numerically or graphically. Students shall provide a qualitative planar sketch, clearly labeling prescribed geometric features and/or provide numerical solutions to a prescribed accuracy.
