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. While you cannot be dropped from the course if your score on the pretest is low, a low score indicates that you are not ready for the computations that will occur later in the course. If you get a low

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
