The primary goal of this course is to provide you the mathematical preparation to succeed eventually in a calculus course.

The textbook for our cours is *Precalculus: An Investigation of Functions (2nd Ed)*, by David Lippman and Melonie Rasmussen. This book can be downloaded for free, or you can pick up an inexpensive hard copy at the bookstore or direct from Amazon. We will use the MyOpenMath system, http://myopenmath.org. Access instructions will be sent out before classes start.
