Theory and application of common and natural logarithms and an introduction to analytic geometry. Emphasis on the plotting, interpretation and uses of logarithmic/semilogarithmic graphs; geometric and practical properties of conic sections; polar/rectangular transformations. Quadratic surfaces are briefly discussed.
Recent Principles or Applications of Math 12 or MATH 0001 or equivalent, with a "C+" or better.
