Course Synopsis
 This course covers topics on basic linear algebra, equations, inequalities, functions and their graphs, polynomial and rational functions, analyzing graphs, exponential and logarithmic functions, systems of linear equations and matrices. 
Course Objectives  The objectives of this course are to: apply mathematical terms, notations, principles and methods. analyze, interpret and make mathematical decisions. apply algebra and functions in the field of science, technology and social management. develop understanding of mathematical concepts, applications and skills to analyze and solve problems so that students have a strong foundation to pursue studies in Biological and Physical Sciences, Medical, Pharmacy, Allied Health Sciences, Nursing, Dentistry and ICT programmes. 
Learning Outcomes  Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to: identify real numbers and equations, and apply these concepts to solve mathematical problems. interpret functions and their algebraic equations into graphs using transformation method. identify and analyze graphs of polynomial and rational functions. determine real and complex zeros of a polynomial function. identify properties of exponential and logarithmic functions and solve problems using these functions. solve system of linear equations using row operations, determinants of matrices and inverse matrices (using row operation and adjoint method).
