By the end of this course, you will have experienced the major components of FST. Topics will include, but are not limited to, Number Patterns; Equations and Inequalities; Functions and Graphs; Polynomial and Rational Functions; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Trigonometry and Statistics.
This course is designed to prepare you not only for further mathematics courses but also for success in higher education. Thus, you will be expected to take responsibility for your own learning. This means, that I expect you to complete homework assignments regularly, read sections of the text, take notes on the readings, be an active participant and listener in class, work cooperatively with your peers as well as with me, and to come to class organized, prepared, and ready to learn.
