  # *Mathematics & Statistics: College Algebra (Mat 108d)

## Course Description

A more in-depth study of the topics introduced in MAT 101. The emphasis is on the study of functions (polynomial, rational, logarithmic, exponential) and their graphs. Additional topics may include matrices, sequences, counting techniques, and probability. Through the activity-based lab component, applications and modeling will be stressed.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of the University's college readiness requirement in mathematics.

## Graphing Techniques: Transformations

Alot of students get confused by graphing using transformations, so here are some great videos from PatrickJMT.com

## More on Polynomials

Here are some additional videos for working with polynomials:

Frequently students have questions about quadratic equations.  Here is a video that may help clarify things. Enjoy!

## Functions

Very important to the study of Mathematics is the idea of a function. Learn more about them here!

## Inverse Functions

Very closely related to functions are Inverse functions. Here, more videos by Khan Academy help to explain the concepts.

## Polynomials

Here Patrick finds the zeros of a polynomial
