B CUSP 123
Explores the concept of a mathematical function and its applications. Explores real world examples and problems to enable students to create mathematical models that help them understand the world in which they live. Each idea will be represented symbolically, numerically, graphically, and verbally. Prerequisite: minimum grade of 2.5 in B CUSP 122, a score of 145-153 on the MPT-AS assessment test, or a score of 151 or higher on the MPT-GS assessment test. Offered: AWSp.
Overview of Course: We will explore the concept of a mathematical function and its applications. Functions are the key to how mathematical models are built. Various mathematical models will be created through the usage of real world examples . This course is designed to prepare students for calculus I and serves as a prerequisite for BCUSP124. Upon successful completion of the course, students are expected to build solid skills in algebra, trigonometry, logarithms, exponentials, composition of functions, and graphing.
