### Course Description

**01:640:115 Math 115 PCA**

**Precalculus College Mathematics (4)**

*Prerequisite: 01:640:026 or appropriate performance on the placement test in mathematics. Students may not receive more that 4 normal credits for any combination of 01:640:111-112, and 115. Students who feel unprepared for this course (who have not had math for several years or whose mathematical background is weak) should consider taking 01:640:111-112, which covers the same material as 115 but at a slower pace and begins with an exensive review of intermediate algebra.*

Algebraic expressions, algebraic equations, inequalities, functions, graphing. Exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions.
