Course lecturer :
Doaa Talha Gebreel
Course assistant :
Eng.Abd Allah Yousry
Course objectives :
1- Know and understand the definition of “function.” Be able to recognize a graph or equation which describes y as a function of x.
2- Evaluate functions at real numbers and simple algebraic expressions.
