Prerequisites: Geometry and Algebra II

In PreCalculus, students will continue to refine and develop their algebraic fluency, particularly with advanced classes of functions, such as polynomial, logarithmic, and exponential functions.  This course has less emphasis on proof and more emphasis on procedural competency than does the advanced course.  Students will work to expand their mathematical problem solving and communication skills.  This course continues to develop students’ understanding of triangle trigonometry and circular trigonometry.  Additional topics include sequences and series, matrices, and a review of conic sections, and may include an introduction to parametric and polar equations.
