Untitled document
To be successful, students should be able to:
1.  Perform advanced operations with functions (using symbolic,
graphical, and numerical representations) and apply knowledge to
modeling problems.
2.  Define and graph inverse functions.
3.  Solve algebraic equations over the complex numbers.
4.  Define and apply characteristics of functions (including
intercepts, turning points, intervals of positive/negative,
increasing/decreasing value) in graphing polynomial, rational,
algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions.
5.  Solve algebraic and trigonometric equations graphically and
symbolically.
6.  Graph circles, functions, parametric representations, and polar
functions using polar coordinates.
7.  Apply trigonometric functions and identities to solve problems
in mathematics and science.
8.  Solve right and oblique triangles using the trigonometric
functions and the laws of sines and cosines.
9.  Use vectors to model applications in mathematics and science.
10.  differentiate between an asymptote and a hole in the graph.

Assignments:
Untitled document
The student will have daily outside reading, problem set assignments
from required text(s), or instructor chosen supplementary materials.
Instructional methodology may include, but not limited to: lecture,
demonstrations, oral recitation, discussion, supervised practice,
independent study, outside project or other assignments.

 Writing: Assessment tools that demonstrate writing skill and/or require students to select, organize and explain ideas in writing. Writing0 - 0% None This is a degree applicable course but assessment tools based on writing are not included because problem solving assessments and skill demonstrations are more appropriate for this course. Problem solving: Assessment tools, other than exams, that demonstrate competence in computational or non-computational problem solving skills. Problem Solving25 - 50% Homework problems, Quizzes, Exams Skill Demonstrations: All skill-based and physical demonstrations used for assessment purposes including skill performance exams. Skill Demonstrations30 - 70% Performance exams Exams: All forms of formal testing, other than skill performance exams. Exams3 - 25% Multiple choice, True/false Other: Includes any assessment tools that do not logically fit into the above categories. Other Category2 - 10% WRITING ASSIGNMENTS

Representative Textbooks and Materials:
