Pre-Calculus & AP Pre-Calculus

Grades 10-12+1High school students may be awarded 1 Math credit upon completion of this course.

Pre-Calculus reviews and builds upon Algebra II and Geometry to prepare students for Calculus and other areas of mathematics. Topics include polynomial and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometry, sequences and series, and polar coordinates.

The course includes two 50-minute meetings per week of live instruction. Assignments are completed through a dynamic software product, which gives the students immediate feedback on their work. Students complete assignments online and submit their written work to their instructor. Assignments, due dates, and grades are easily available for students and parents to view.

Various forms of help are available to students throughout the year. Hints and guided answers are provided directly through the software. The beginning of each class is set aside to answer any questions students have about their assignments. The discussion forum allows students to ask questions outside of class. Questions posted here are answered within 24 hours.

Students should have successfully completed Algebra 2 and Geometry prior to enrolling in Pre-Calculus. Though graphing utilities are available online, we recommend that students have their own graphing calculator for the course.

This course is available in both standard and AP versions. Students who register for the AP version will be given extra assignments designed to help prepare them for the AP Pre-Calculus exam, along with additional instruction time.

An additional $35 non-refundable deposit is required for the Math software program (per year, not per semester).

High school students may be awarded 1 Math credit upon completion of this course.
