Graduation Requirement: Mathematics
Pre-Calculus with Trig is designed for junior and senior students. Enrollment in pre-calculus with trigonometry is predicated on student’s prior knowledge in algebra 2. Student’s studying pre-calculus will have regular opportunities to use a graphing calculator to explore higher-level concepts.
In this course students will combine algebraic and geometric concepts needed to prepare students for the study of calculus. This course will strengthen student’s conceptual understanding mathematical reasoning based the basic math core sequence. Familiarity with taught concepts is germane for student’s intending to study calculus, physics, and engineering. All pre-calculus courses will delve into: functions and their graphs, polynomial and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, sequence and series, conic sections, analytic trigonometry, and applications of trigonometry.
