Section Description

Math 010 OL2 is an asynchronous online class. This means that we do not have specific meeting days and times for the class. All resources will be available online and you can work on the course material whenever it is convenient for you. There will be several deadlines each week that need to be met, but you can complete the coursework flexibly to meet these deadlines. This 3-credit course covers topics in algebra including polynomial, rational, inverse, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Trigonometry topics include triangle trigonometry, the laws of sines and cosines, and an introduction to trigonometry as a collection of periodic functions. Upon successful completion of the course, students will be prepared to take a course in Calculus. After completing this course students will be able to: • Represent functions algebraically, numerically, graphically and verbally, including absolute value, polynomial, rational, piecewise-defined, root/radical, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions. • Analyze the algebraic structure and graph of a function to identify domain, range, intercepts, asymptotes, intervals on which the function is increasing, decreasing or constant, local extrema, the inverse function, etc. • Perform operations on functions and transformations on graphs of functions. • Solve a variety of equations, systems of equations, and inequalities in a variety of contexts and applications, including those involving absolute value, polynomial, rational, piecewise-defined, root/radical, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions.

Section Expectation

We will be using the ALEKS online learning program in this course. You are required to purchase access to ALEKS, which comes with an electronic textbook: Precalculus, second edition, by John Coburn. The eBook version of the text contains all of the material contained within a hardcopy of the text but also includes links to demonstrations, tutorials, videos, and other resources. There is no need to purchase a personal hardcopy of the text. You can purchase the access code at the UVM Bookstore or directly from the ALEKS website, www.aleks.com. You are expected to watch all lesson videos and to spend 6-8 hours per week working on ALEKS Objectives, Quizzes or Tests.
