Spring 2012 Kiryl Tsishchanka Syllabus Learning Objectives We   will   begin   by   understanding   what   a   function   is   and   how   it   can   be  represented   geometrically   as   a   graph.   We   will   then   learn   some   standard  function  manipulations   (algebraic   combinations,   composition,  inverses,   etc.)  focusing on how such manipulations affect the shape of the graph.  Then we  will go through a list of classic functions (polynomial, rational, trigonometric,  exponential, logarithmic, etc.) learning their algebraic and geometric properties,  emphasizing the relationship between them. Class Meetings The class meets MW at 9:30-10:45 AM in SILV 714. There is a mandatory 75 minute  recitation session. You must register for lecture and recitation separately. Homework There are two media for homework in Precalculus. There will be weekly online assignments administered  through  WebAssign  (This is why a WebAssign software license is one of the  required course materials), WebAssign problems are computational in nature  and assess the techniques introduced in class. Many of these problems will  resemble examples in the textbook or from class. You will get immediate  feedback on your progress and will get several chances to ensure it.   WebAssign is available directly through the course's Blackboard website  available at your  home.nyu.edu  account. There will also be problems to write up on paper each week and turn in. These  problems will require more than just procedure, might connect two more more  things together, and will more closely resemble the harder exam problems.
