MATH 150 - Precalculus Mathematics


This course provides the mathematical preparation necessary for success in calculus. It also provides preparation for basic physics, computer science and engineering science courses. Topics covered include review of functions and graphing techniques; logarithmic and exponential functions; review of basic right-angle trigonometry followed by an extensive treatment of trigonometric functions, identities and applications to the analytic geometry of the conic sections, applications to two-dimensional vectors and to the geometry of complex numbers. Note:  

This course may be subject to a Course Materials Charge. The charge may vary by semester, depending on the course materials required. The Course Materials Initiative (CMI) was established to provide students with more affordable course materials, enhance the students’ experience on a common digital platform via Blackboard, and position UMBC to be ahead of the curve with digital content.  More information is available at UMBC Bookstore’s website.
