Course Overview

At its heart, the course explores functions and their uses in modeling and analysis of real-world situations. Topics include rational exponents, complex numbers, and several types of functions: linear, quadratic, and polynomial functions, as well as rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions.
