# MATH 160 - Precalculus Mathematics

The following are the Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) and Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs) for MATH 160. A Student Learning Outcome is a measurable outcome statement about what a student will think, know, or be able to do as a result of an educational experience. Course Measurable Objectives focus more on course content, and can be considered to be smaller pieces that build up to the SLOs.

**Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)**

- Students will be able to analyze a variety of functions.
- Students will be able to solve different types of trigonometric equations.

**Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs)**

- Graph functions using translations and reflections.
- Determine the domains of functions.
- Operate with functions.
- Find the inverse of functions.
- Use linear and quadratic functions to solve application problems.
- Solve for the complex roots of polynomial functions.
- Analyze polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric equations.
- Solve polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric equations.
- Operate with vectors, including the dot product; use vectors to solve application problems.
- Find the partial fraction decomposition of rational expressions.
- Graph conic sections; recognize or derive their properties, and write their equations.
- Solve and graph systems of nonlinear equations.
- Analyze arithmetic and geometric sequences.
- Use the binomial theorem.
