# MATH R115 - College Algebra

**Course description**:

An advanced course in algebra, this course
focuses on the study of functions and their graphs, techniques of
solving equations and the recognition and creation of patterns.
Students will analyze and graph functions (constant, linear, quadratic,
absolute value, square root, cubic, polynomial, rational, exponential,
and logarithmic). Topics also include inequalities, absolute values,
analytic geometry of conic sections, systems of linear and nonlinear
equations and inequalities, matrices, determinants, the binomial
theorem, sequences, series, and mathematical induction. This course
includes problem-solving strategies with applications to many areas
including business and the social, biological, and physical sciences.

**Prerequisites**:
