Prerequisites: Geometry and semester grades of B or better in Algebra II Plus

PreCalculus Plus reviews functions as models, with extended opportunities for students to explore concepts and to apply knowledge in solving challenging problems, both individually and in collaboration with others.  This course presumes mastery of second-year algebra and an introductory understanding of triangular and circular trigonometry, although both will be reviewed and further developed.  Vector analysis and analytic geometry, including parametric and polar representations of curves, are thoroughly examined.  Other topics include sequences and series, combinatorics and probability, and limits.
