MATH112 Pre-Calculus (3 semester hours)

This is a course to prepare students for Calculus. It synthesizes topics from college algebra and trigonometry (courses such as MATH110 College Algebra and MATH111 Trigonometry). It also goes into greater depth with concepts that will be crucial when taking Calculus. These mathematical concepts and techniques are important to those continuing into more advanced math and math-related classes. Practical applications are provided throughout the course. The course assumes the student is completely comfortable with the language of algebra, equations and inequalities, polynomials, factoring, and rational expressions. If a lower-level math course has not been completed recently, we recommend that students take MATH100 Pre-Algebra or MATH101 Introduction to College Algebra.
