• COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course will provide a thorough study of functions, including piecewise, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions. Students will develop the skills and strategies needed to design function models and apply these models to real world situations. Students will expand their skills in graphing and analyzing functions. Students will solve linear systems of 3 x 3 and greater, as well as 2 x 2 non-linear systems of equations. The mathematics of matrices, vectors, complex numbers and conic sections may also be examined. Graphing calculator required.
