Pre-Calculus weaves together previous study of algebra, geometry, and mathematical functions into a preparatory course for calculus. The course focuses on mastery of critical skills and exposure to new skills necessary for success in subsequent math courses. Throughout the course, Common Core standards are taught and reinforced as the student learns how to apply the concepts in real life situations. Topics include fundamental concepts of Algebra, functions and graphs, polynomials and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, analytic trigonometry, topics in trigonometry, systems of equations and inequalities, matrices and determinants, conic sections and analytic geometry, sequences, induction, probability and an introduction to Calculus. Pre-Calculus Part I includes seven multiple choice lesson exams and a midterm written exam that requires the student to demonstrate understanding by showing work. Pre-Calculus Part II includes four multiple choice lesson exams and a final written exam that requires the student to demonstrate understanding by showing work, as well as a multiple choice comprehensive final exam that will cover both parts I and II of Pre-Calculus.
