This course helps to build the foundational material to use mathematics as a tool to model, understand, and interpret the world around us. This is done through studying functions, their properties, and applications to data analysis. Concepts of precalculus provide the set of tools for the beginning student to begin their scientific career, preparing them for future science and calculus courses. This course is designed for all students, not just those interested in further mathematics courses. Students interested in the natural sciences, computer sciences, psychology, sociology, or similar will genuinely benefit from this introductory course, applying the skills learned to their discipline to analyze and interpret their subject material. Students will be presented with not only new ideas, but also new applications of an old subject. Real-life data, exercise sets, and regular assessments help to motivate and reinforce the content in this course, leading to learning and mastery.
Some familiarity with algebraic expressions and function basics at the high school level.

Very good basic course for PUC level. Explanations are crisp and to the point.
Some tests are difficult to understand due to lack of explanation in problems or questions.
very good teaching, a little preview should be provided giving an idea what mathematical concepts should be known beforehand
One of the best courses on Coursera. This course beautifully explains the basics of mathematical modeling and takes the student to higher mathematics with great understanding.
