dimensions for students in biology and agriculture and in business management. In many situations, from biological sciences and agriculture to business, it is not appropriate to consider variables of interest at discrete points, but rather in a continuous manner. The mathematical area that deals with variables that change continuously, rather than in jumps, is called calculus. Calculus can be used to model biological processes such as population growth or spread of a disease and business processes such as optimizing revenue or profit. The tools you will learn in calculus will enable you to find solutions to problems (such as those mentioned above) that cannot be handled with algebra (or that can be handled more easily with calculus). Back to Top Prerequisites To be successful in this Math 119 course, you must have a basic understanding of college algebra, such as can be acquired by taking BYU Math 110. A review of college algebra is included in your book in Chapters R (which stands for "Algebra R eference"), 1 and 2. Before you begin this course, you will be required to take a pretest on this material. Lessons 1 and 2 include the material in the book that you will need to review before taking the pre-test.
