MAT 010 Pre-calculus with an Introduction to Calculus I
This course is intended solely for those students who wish to take calculus, but whose preparation makes a slower-paced course in calculus advisable. Topics covered include a review of algebra (solving equations and inequalities, simplification of algebraic expressions), properties of polynomials and rational functions, limits, continuity, an introduction to derivatives via polynomials and rational functions, and applications of the derivative. Mathematics 010 can not be used for any distribution credit. (For students who desire a distribution credit in mathematics but do not wish to take calculus, Mathematics 103, 104, 106 and 108 are recommended.) This course is offered fall semester.
Prerequisite: Admission by department placement only.
