Precalculus: Enhanced with Graphing Utilities, 5th ed. by Michael Sullivan &
Michael Sullivan III.
We will also use graphing calculators and computer software.
Math Analysis is a pre-calculus course that includes an
in-depth conceptual analysis of algebraic, polynomial, rational, logarithmic,
exponential, and trigonometric functions. Topics
include graphical behavior, domains and ranges, roots (real & complex),
turning points using the first derivative, graphing (using transformations with
and without a graphing calculator), application problem solving and data
analysis (using introductory statistics, given data, and data gathered in
laboratory activities), and an introduction to integration.
Parametric equations are presented with a focus on applications and
conceptual analysis. Analysis
includes required algebraic proofs and/or conceptual explanations in all written
and oral presentations. Graphing calculators, spreadsheets, and a computer algebra
system are used extensively. The
study of matrices is included and optional topics include an introduction to
sequences and series.
