This module is intended to
explore some of the properties of Algebraic Functions (which include
polynomials and rational functions as well as functions involving
You will learn ....(See Module Learning Objectives for more details.)
This module includes a set of Study
Notes, an on-line Lab
to help reinforce the concepts, and a collection of links to other
on the topic of Algebraic Functions.
It is provided as an aid to independent non-credit study by students who feel a need to improve their understanding of these topics prior to either taking the Math Diagnostic Test, or entering a Calculus course.
There is no assessment or credit available in this context. In order to obtain credit it is necessary to enrol in a course such as Langara's Math 1170. For distance learners, the Open Learning Agency's Math 100 covers similar material.
In a one semester precalculus course the material in this module
takes about two
weeks to complete.
