Precalculus

Course Description

This course is designed for high school students with a strong interest in accelerating their mathematical studies and preparing to take an AP Calculus AB or BC course next year. Students enrolled in this course will gain exposure to many precalculus concepts including linear and quadratic functions, trigonometry, exponents, and logarithms. Additionally, students will acquire problem solving skills that can be applied to their any current or future math courses. This course can be taken concurrently with Algebra 2 if the student wants to take Calculus a year early in high school.

Course Terms

Precalculus is offered in four terms:

  • Fall, covering polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions
  • Winter, covering Trigonometry and conic sections
  • Spring, covering matrices, vectors, and polar coordinates
  • Summer, covering sequences, series, and an introduction to derivatives an integrals
