## MAC - Mathematics/Calculus & Pre-Calculus

(Offered fall, spring, and summer). Prerequisite: Math placement test or minimum grade of "C" in MAT1033. In this course, students will develop problem-solving skills, critical thinking, computational proficiency, and contextual fluency through the study of equations, functions, and their graphs. Emphasis will be placed on quadratic equations, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Topics will include solving equations and inequalities, definition and properties of a function, domain and range, transformations of graphs, operations on functions, composite and inverse functions, basic polynomial and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and applications. A graphing calculator is required. The TI-83/84 are the only allowable calculators for test days. If a student wishes to use any other calculator, they must see their instructor in advance for approval.

(Offered fall, spring, and summer). Prerequisite: Math placement test or minimum grade of "C" in MAC1140 and MAC1114. Placing into MAC2311 by only placement test scores requires permission of the mathematics division chair. To receive permission, the student who has not successfully completed MAC1114 (Plane Trigonometry) must verify successful completion (?C? or higher) of a trigonometry course at the high school level or higher. A graphing calculator is required. The TI-83/84 are the only allowable calculators for test days. If a student wishes to use any other calculator they must see their instructor in advance for approval. In this course, students will develop problem solving skills, critical thinking, computational proficiency, and contextual fluency through the study of limits, derivatives, and definite and indefinite integrals of functions of one variable, including algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions, and applications. Topics will include limits, continuity, differentiation and rates of change, optimization, curve sketching, and introduction to integration and area. NOTE: For the Calculus sequence, the math faculty at GCSC strongly advise that students complete the entire sequence at a single institution. Course content may vary depending on the institutions. Completing the sequence assures that no content is lost in transfer.
