Course Description (from the College): 

This course is a continuation of the study of functions.  The concept of transformations is used to graph and analyze functions including quadratic, higher degree polynomial, power, piecewise, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions.  The function concept is applied to solving related equations, inequalities, and applications regarding these types of functions. The concept of functions is extended to include composition of functions and inverse functions.  Circles are defined and analyzed. This course meets the general education requirement for the AA degree.  Prerequisite: Math 104, Math 110 or Math 111 with a grade of C or better, or placement by COMPASS.
