Overview This course is a full year Precalculus course, which presents an in-depth examination of analytic trigonometry, trigonometric functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, polynomial and rational functions, and introduction to limits. The intent is to study and apply advanced mathematical topics while developing the student’s abstract and critical thinking skills. A strong background in Honors Algebra II will be required from the beginning of the course, and students will be expected to understand the concepts taught in class, as well as to transfer them to novel applications and problem solving situations. Scientific and graphing calculators are required.
