Real Prerequisites:  Before you take this course, you should know that it is expected that you have a decent foundation in working with functions and using algebra to solve multistep equations. These equations can involve algebraic expressions such as the quadratic formula, the square root, complex fractions, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic components. You should be comfortable using graphs of functions to answer questions. You should know how to determine if two algebraic expressions are equivalent. You should have a foundation in working with trigonometric functions and solving trigonometric equations. You should be able to work with exponential and logarithmic equations. You should know a polynomial or rational function is. You should know what the root of a function is.

If your knowledge is lacking in some of the things mentioned above, you may find it difficult to succeed in this course.

Lecture Time and Location:    Please see the eClass page for details.

Technical Requirements: There are technical requirements for students to be able to complete this course.  You need a reliable high-speed internet connection to attend lectures via Zoom or take tests or exams using eClass.
