    welcomes you all to: 

          MAC 1147





MAC 1147 is a course that covers all topics discussed in the courses MAC 1140 (Pre-Calculus Algebra) and MAC 1114 (Trigonometry).  We will review all about functions, the concept, domain, range, graphs, even/odd, inverse functions.  We will introduce many elementary functions such as constant functions, linear, quadratic, cubic, the general polynomial functions, rational functions, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric functions, inverse trigonometric functions, piece-wise functions, and the associated applications.  Other topics will be discussed such as solution to non-linear inequalities, the Division Algorithm, the Remainder Theorem, Factor Theorem, exponential/logarithmic equations, angles, radian measure, degree measure, trigonometric identities, trigonometric equations, the law of sines, the law of cosines, polar coordinates, vectors, the conic sections, the summation notation, introduction to sequences and series, the induction principle, properties of summations, the Binomial Theorem, and many relevant applications.  If time permits, I would like to briefly introduce partial fraction decomposition.
