Hi. I did poorly in HS math due to many reasons, but now I love it and have received ~ 100% on every exam in the past 4 remedial math classes. Next I start cc version of precalc. So lately ive been feeling like my cc is teaching us watered down math. For example, logarithms are not introduced until part 1 of precalc (precalc at my cc is divided into 2 seperate classes, lets call them 111 and 112). Long division of polynomials is skipped completely as well. Link to text being used: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-EHEP002958.html The bold chapters will be covered in both classes, the rest are skipped. Chapter 0: Equations and Inequalities Chapter 1: Functions and their Graphs Chapter 2: Polynomial and Rational Functions Chapter 3: Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Chapter 4: Trigonometric Functions of Angles Chapter 5: Trigonometric Functions of Real Numbers Chapter 6: Analytic Trigonometry Chapter 7: Polar Coordinates and Vectors Chapter 8: Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities Chapter 9: Conics, Systems of Nonlinear Equations and Parametric Equations Chapter 10: Sequences and Series Also absent is anything on limits, which is not even introduced until Calc 1. I asked several teachers here what the hardest topic was for their 111 students and they all said logarithms and rationals (fractions are hard to folks here I suppose). Not sure what to do. Part of me wants to stop taking college math altogether and just teach myself. I want to get a degree in Engineering and I don't want to have any holes in my maths.
