Course Pre-requisites, Co-requisites, and/or Other Restrictions A test score of 480 on the SAT II Mathematics Level IC exam or a grade of at least a C- in MATH 1314 or an equivalent course. The goal of this course is to provide the student with an understanding of algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions. Additionally, the successful student will gain proficiency in the algebraic manipulation required to succeed in Calculus. Course Description The goal of this course is to provide the student with an understanding of algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions. Additionally, the successful student will gain proficiency in the algebraic manipulation required to succeed in Calculus Student Learning Objectives/Outcomes 1. Students will evaluate functions, determine their domains, and be able to find the inverse function if one exists. 2. Students will perform algebraic operations with polynomial and rational functions, and determine the domains and asymptotes of rational functions. 3. Students will evaluate and recognize exponential and logarithmic functions, and use their properties to solve exponential and logarithmic equations. 4. Students will evaluate trigonometric functions, use fundamental trigonometric identities, and evaluate inverse trigonometric functions. 5. Students will solve systems of linear equations Required Textbooks and Materials TEXTBOOK: CALCULATOR: Precalculus, 7th Edition, 8th edition or ebook by Larson & Hostetler. No Graphing Calculators, a scientific calculator is needed.

Textbook, calculator, lecture notes and scratch paper should be brought to each class period. Students will be working problems in class.

Field Trip Policies Off-campus Instruction and Course Activities Off-campus, out-of-state, and foreign instruction and activities are subject to state law and University policies and procedures regarding travel and risk-related activities. Information regarding these rules and regulations may be found at the website address http://www.utdallas.edu/BusinessAffairs/Travel_Risk_Activities.htm. Additional information is available from the office of the school dean. Below is a description of any travel and/or riskrelated activity associated with this course.

Student Conduct & Discipline The University of Texas System and The University of Texas at Dallas have rules and regulations for the orderly and efficient conduct of their business. It is the responsibility of each student and each student organization to be knowledgeable about the rules and regulations which govern student conduct and activities. General information on student conduct and discipline is contained in the UTD printed publication, A to Z Guide, which is provided to all registered students each academic year. The University of Texas at Dallas administers student discipline within the procedures of recognized and established due process. Procedures are defined and described in the Rules and Regulations, Series 50000, Board of Regents, The University of Texas System, and in Title V, Rules on Student Services and Activities of the university’s Handbook of Operating Procedures. Copies of these rules and regulations are available to students in the Office of the Dean of Students, where staff members are available to assist students in interpreting the rules and regulations (SU 1.602, 972/883-6391) and online at http://www.utdallas.edu/judicialaffairs/UTDJudicialAffairs-HOPV.html A student at the university neither loses the rights nor escapes the responsibilities of citizenship. He or she is expected to obey federal, state, and local laws as well as the Regents’ Rules, university regulations, and administrative rules. Students are subject to discipline for violating the standards of conduct whether such conduct takes place on or off campus, or whether civil or criminal penalties are also imposed for such conduct. Academic Integrity The faculty expects from its students a high level of responsibility and academic honesty. Because the value of an academic degree depends upon the absolute integrity of the work done by the student for that degree, it is imperative that a student demonstrates a high standard of individual honor in his or her scholastic work.
