Statistics are important not only for the consumer but also for the prospective college student. Functions are important throughout mathematics and its applications. Trigonometry is essential for the sciences and engineering. Graphing calculators are used throughout the course to promote a student’s ability to visualize functions, to explore relationships between equations and their graphs, to generate and analyze data, and to develop the concept of a limit.
