Learning Outcomes

Outcome

Algebraically solve linear, quadratic, rational, radical, exponential, and logarithmic equations and apply solutions to problems from business and economics.

Outcome

Demonstrate an understanding of the concept of a function, including its domain and range; find the equations of, sketch graphs for, and perform transformations on, linear, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic functions.

Outcome

Formulate and solve real-world application problems including the calculation of future and present values for simple annuities and interest-bearing accounts.

Outcome

Graph linear inequalities and use linear programming to maximize or minimize linear objective functions subject to linear constraints.

Outcome

Calculate the size of sets using combinations, permutations, the addition principle and the multiplication principle, and illustrate the results in tables or Venn diagrams.

Outcome

Calculate the theoretical and empirical probability of an event occurring, including conditional probabilities and expected values.

Outcome

Write logical, step-by-step solutions to problems and communicate solutions orally.
