Honors Precalculus is an advanced math course designed for students who have a strong foundation in algebra. This course builds upon the concepts learned in Algebra II and prepares students for the study of calculus.
In Honors Precalculus, students will study advanced topics in algebra, trigonometry and geometry. They will explore the properties of functions, including polynomial, exponential and logarithmic functions, as well as trigonometric functions and their inverses. They will also learn about sequences, series and the binomial theorem.
Throughout the course, students will engage in problem-solving activities and mathematical modeling. They will work on applying mathematical concepts to real-world situations and use technology, such as graphing calculators to analyze data and solve problems.
Students in Honors Precalculus will develop their mathematical reasoning and communication skills. They will learn to write mathematical proofs and to communicate mathematical ideas effectively to others.
By the end of this course, students will have a deep understanding of advanced mathematical concepts and will be well-prepared for the study of calculus. They will have the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue advanced degrees in math, science, and engineering fields, and to excel in these areas.
