Generally considered a combination of college algebra and trigonometry, this class introduces students to the basic concepts of precalculus which form the building blocks for further mathematical study. In preparation for calculus, this class provides the opportunity to explore problems graphically, numerically and analytically. The study of this class will prepare students to continue their mathematical studies up to Calculus I. Topics covered include: functions and graphs, polynomials, power, and rational functions, exponential, logistic, and logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, analytic trigonometry and applications of trigonometry.
Prerequisite(s): Algebra I, Algebra II
