Untitled document
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
1.   Perform advanced operations with functions (using symbolic,
graphical, and numerical representations) and apply knowledge to
application and modeling problems.
2.   Define and graph inverse functions.
3.   Define the trigonometric fuctions, using both right triangle and unit
circle approaches, and develop applications of radian measure.
4.   Define and apply characteristics of functions (including intercepts,
turning points, extreme values, intervals of positive/negative/
increasing/decreasing value, transformations, symmetry) in graphing
polynomial, rational, absolute value, radical, exponential, logarithmic,
trigonometric, and inverse trigonometric functions.
5.    Graph asymptotes and recognize a hole in the graph.
6.    Develop and verify trigonometric identities.
7.    Solve equations symbolically and graphically --involving polynomial, rational,
absolute value, radical, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions --
over the real numbers; and, as appropriate, the complex numbers.
8.    Solve application and modeling problems using the trigonometric functions,
identities, and the Laws of Sines and Cosines.
9.    Represent complex numbers in, and perform operations using,
trigonometric form.
10.  Graph circles, piecewise-defined functions, and parametric equations.
