# Course Curriculum and Syllabus for Mathematics

Course Description:
This course provides the numerical and graphical foundation for a college
calculus. An outline of the topics includes:

 Relations and Functions, Domain, Range, interval notation, Complex Numbers, Vectors The Nature of Graphs, Trigonometric Graphs, Rational functions, Limits, Continuity of functions, One-to-one and Inverse Functions, Properties of logarithms and exponents, Amplitude, Period, and Phase shift, Graphs of Inverses, Vertical and horizontal asymptotes, The First Derivative Rational, radical expressions and equations.

Prerequisites: Three years of NYS regent’s Mathematics (or equivalent high
school Mathematics).

Required Text(s): PRECALCULUS WITH LIMITS – A graphing approach 4th
Edition Larson, Hostetler, Edwards (McDougal Littel),2005

Supplemental Text(s): Intermediate Algebra with Applications 6th Edition
Aufmann, Barker, Lockwood (Houghton Mifflin) 2004, Calculus of a Single
Variable 7th Edition Larson, Hostetler, Edwards (Houghton Mifflin) 2002

Required Supplement(s): TI-83 or TI-84 graphing calculator or comparable
graphing calculator (NCTM Technology Standard).

Course Objectives: Students will develop problem-solving techniques using
equations, functions, and graphs. Students will perform operations including
logarithmic and exponential properties, and analyze graphs of various functions.
Students will also find vertical and horizontal asymptotes of functions, and
investigate limits and continuity. Students will be introduced to the first
derivative.

Students will:

• Apply a graphical approach to problem solving. (NCTM Representation
Standard)

• Investigate the nature of graphs. (NCTM Geometry Standard)

• Perform operations with logarithmic and exponential equations. (NYS Algebra
Strands)

• Develop curve-sketching techniques. (NCTM Geometry Standard)

• Identify areas of discontinuity caused by holes, asymptotes, gaps and jumps.
(NYS Representation Strands)

• Be introduced to limits, continuity, and the first derivative.

Attendance Policy: Attendance is required. Students are responsible for missed
class work, notes, and assignments.

Grading Scale: Tests: 45%, Quizzes: 30%, Homework and class work: 25%.
Final Grade Determined by (include percentages): The 4 – 10 week marking
periods are averaged and weighted 75% and the final exam is 25%.
