This course is a functional approach to algebra that incorporates the use of appropriate
technology. Emphasis will be placed on the study of functions and their graphs; inequalities; and
linear, quadratic, piecewise defined, rational, polynomial, exponential and logarithmic
functions. Appropriate applications will be included. Students receive credit toward graduation
for only one of the following courses: MATH 1001, MATH 1111.
