MATHE 4700C Modeling with Algebraic and Trigonometric Functions

In this course, students will use algebra, geometry, and trigonometry to mathematize real life problems. Students will formulate questions, identify assumptions, collect data, and build and revise mathematical models. Students will use multiple representations and methods including formulas, diagrams, graphs, and procedures, and technology in modeling. Particular attention will be paid to linear, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions. Students will be asked to interpret models in contexts and will be expected to communicate effectively about connections they see, representations they create, and generalizations they make. Technological tools such as graphing calculators will be used to facilitate the learning. Adolescent certification candidates may not take this course for graduate credit without permission of the mathematics advisor.
