Section #: 2568 (PRECAL)
Taught by Bear, Chasten
In pre-calculus students learn the skills necessary to succeed in a college-level calculus course. Topics include Function Analysis, Logarithms and Exponentials, and Trigonometry.
Pre-Calculus extends the course of study in algebraic reasoning past Algebra II (or Integrated Math III). The foundations of algebra and functions developed in previous courses will be extended to new functions, including exponential and logarithmic functions, and to higher-level sequences and series. This course will allow students to more accurately model real-life phenomena that are regular topics of discussion in college-level STEM courses. Students pursuing non-STEM careers will benefit from an increased understanding of mathematical modeling and data analysis, both of which are increasingly used in nearly all career fields.
Algebra II or Integrated Mathematics III
A one-credit course (Pre-Calculus can be taken with Trigonometry to substitute for the two-credit Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry course).
Counts as a Mathematics Course for the General, Core 40, Core 40 with Academic Honors and Core 40 with Technical Honors diplomas
