What you will learn in this course:

This is a full year course that extends the study of linear, quadratic, polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions from advanced algebra.  Strong attention is given to the study of trigonometry, including:  the unit circle, graphing trigonometric functions, solving trigonometric equations, inverse trigonometric functions, verifying trigonometric identities and applications of trigonometry.

 

How you will learn in this course:

The basic driver of this course will be the precalculus textbook.  The students will learn through lecture, discussion, homework problem sets and assessments.

 

Why this course is important:

This course will provide the transition from advanced algebra to the study of calculus as well as providing the students with a strong foundation in trigonometry.
