__MAT 123-Fall 2011__

__Course Description:__ This course can be considered pre-calculus with an
introduction to what we call calculus. We will examine trigonometric functions,
exponential functions, logarithmic functions, and rational functions, as well as
some modeling. After the second exam, we will study a key concept in calculus
called the derivative which can be used to describe how functions change.
