This is a course designed to prepare students for MATH 2413 Calculus I. Content includes algebraic, logarithmic, exponential, and trigonometric functions and equations; parametric equations; and the polar coordinate system. Prerequisites: Trigonometry, MATH 1316, or an equivalent course. You should also have current algebra skills at the level ofMATH 1314 College Algebra. If you do not have current knowledge of these topics, then you should ask your instructor about course level changes. Importance of Prerequisites: This is not a review course. If you do not have current knowledge of the material in our MATH 1314 College Algebra, and MATH 1316, Trigonometry, please ask your instructor about changing to one of these course to better prepare for MATH 2412. Required Text : Functions Modeling Change: A Preparation for Calculus , by Connally, Hughes- Hallet, Gleason, et al., 4th edition. Use of Graphing Utilities: As with any course where either graphing or scientific calculators are used, the calculator will be used as a supportive tool. This course is not about calculator usage, but about precalculus concepts. We will use graphing calculators when their use enhances the understanding of a mathematical idea. Graphing calculators are not required for this course. However, as you progress through the semester you may find it convenient to purchase your own. Individual instructors may vary in how often and in what manner they utilize these types of calculators. Most ACC faculty are familiar with the TI family of graphing calculators. Hence, TI calculators are highly recommended for student use. Other calculator brands can also be used. Your instructor will determine the extent of calculator use in your class section. INSTRUCTIONAL METHODOLOGY This course is taught in the classroom primarily as a lecture/discussion course. Course Rationale : This course is designed to teach students the algebraic and trigonometric
