Precalculus Course Overview

  • MATH 1011 is a three-credit precalculus course that was intentionally designed to prepare students for subsequent college-level calculus courses. This course will review a variety of the prerequisite mathematical concepts necessary for calculus. Topics include rational functions, trigonometric functions, polar coordinates, sequences and series, probability, and a brief introduction to continuity. Each of these topics will be applied to real-world situations that can be modeled mathematically. In this course, students will practice communicating the realistic applications of each of these topics.

    *This course is considered an upper-level undergraduate course (300 level or above)

Precalculus Course Outcomes

  • Interpret graphical information of rational and trigonometric functions.
  • Construct graphs of rational and trigonometric functions.
  • Solve trigonometric functions.
  • Determine angle measures and side lengths of triangles using trigonometric identities.
  • Graph equations in polar coordinates.
  • Communicate algebraic facility of trigonometric functions with respect to real-world applications.
  • Evaluate mathematical series.
  • Solve counting problems using combinations and permutations.
  • Compute probabilities of events using counting theory and probability models.
  • Find the limits of a function.
  • Identify the continuity of a function.

Precalculus Course Prerequisites

  • One semester of college-level algebra (MATH 1010)
    * Please note these prerequisites are highly suggested and support course preparedness and success. We recommend having completed the listed prerequisites before enrolling and within the past seven years.

How do exams work?

All exams are taken online. Major exams are required to be proctored online through ProctorU. For instructions on how to take your exams online, visit UNE Online’s ProctorU site. Please note exams must also be proctored with the UNE-approved external webcam.
