# MATH 1110: Algebra II

This is designed to sharpen algebraic skills and concepts in a function-based setting. Topics include linear functions, quadratic functions, composing and decomposing functions, inverse functions, logarithmic and exponential functions. The course emphasizes both the manipulation of symbols and an understanding of when manipulations are effective and appropriate. Note that this course serves as a prerequisite course and does not satisfy the proficiency 3 general education requirement.
