This course explores the use of functions to model change. Topics include linear, polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions . Problems will be approached algebraically, graphically, numerically, and verbally, and c ollaborative learning will be emphasized. Context will usually be provided by examples in physics, and students interested in earning credit in physics should register for Precalculus Models in Physics which pairs this course with a study of energy.
