MAC 2147 - Precalculus Algebra/Trigonometry

(4 Credit Hours)

Prerequisites: A grade of “A” or “B” in MAC 1105  or equivalent.

This course meets Area II for both A.A. and A.S. general education requirements. Topics include the study of the following functions: polynomial, rational, radical, absolute value, exponential and logarithmic. Other topics include matrices and systems of equations and inequalities, trigonometric functions and applications, analytic trigonometry, vectors, trigonometric form of complex numbers, parametric equations, polar coordinates and equations and conic sections. An emphasis will be placed on solving applications by mathematical modeling. This course is intended for students whose major requires the calculus sequence. Use of a graphing calculator is integrated throughout this course. Students who have credit for MAC 2147 cannot subsequently get credit for MAC 1140  or MAC 1114 , or vice versa. Note(s): Student enrollment in any mathematics course is contingent upon approval by the mathematics department. This means that students who have been misplaced may be subject to schedule changes. Students must have successfully completed the stated prerequisite course with a grade of “C” or better.
