# Precalculus through Data and Modelling

Johns Hopkins University

This specialization is designed to provide learners with the foundational knowledge and skills to use mathematics as a tool for modeling and interpreting real-world phenomena. Through studying functions, their properties, and their applications in data analysis, students will gain a solid understanding of precalculus, setting them on the path for future science and calculus courses.

Students will learn to model data using both single and multivariable functions, as well as visualize and analyze data using various technologies. They will also understand the properties of different types of functions and apply them to model different situations. Furthermore, students will be equipped to perform vector operations, such as addition, scalar multiplication, dot product, and cross product, to analyze geometry in space.

Regardless of their specific field of interest, whether it be natural sciences, computer sciences, psychology, sociology, or similar disciplines, learners will find value in this course. The skills acquired can be applied to various disciplines, enabling students to analyze and interpret subject material within their respective fields.

Real-life data, exercise sets, and regular assessments are incorporated into the course to motivate and reinforce learning, ultimately leading to mastery of the content.
