functions 1

## Course description

Students will learn and apply algebraic concepts to solve real-world problems.
Prerequisite: Functions 1

Students will be helped to visualize; represent; model and solve problems that involve applications with business and science as well as make connections within the field of mathematics. The focus of the course will include topics such as quadratic; polynomial; rational; radical; and exponential functions.
