22M:009 Elementary Functions
This is a standard one semester college precalculus course. It covers the same material as 22M:002 Basic Algebra II and 22M:005 Trigonometry, but is at a faster pace. It is not intended for students who have not seen trigonometry. Topics covered include functions, relations, coordinate systems, properties and graphs of algebraic, trigonometric, logarithmic and exponential functions, inverse trigonometric functions, and properties of lines and conic sections. To be successful in this course the student should be familiar with the material in the Arithmetic Module and the Algebra Module and have some acquaintance with the material in the Trigonometry Module. This class is usually taught by a TA in sections of about thirty students. The prerequisite is 22M:005, or a satisfactory score on the math placement exam, or two years of high school algebra and one year of high school geometry. This course may be used to satisfy the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences quantitative or formal reasoning requirement. Students planning to take 22M:017 Calculus and Matrix Algebra for Business who need an algebra review should take 22M:013 Mathematics for Business instead of 22M:009.
