Pre-Calculus reviews and builds upon Algebra 2 and Geometry to prepare students for Calculus and other areas of mathematics. Topics include Polynomial and Rational Functions, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Trigonometric Functions with Applications, and Probability.

The Pre-Calculus course will meet for two hours each week. Part of each class will be set aside for answering any questions the students have and to work through some of the more challenging problems from the assignments.

Students should have successfully completed Algebra II and Geometry prior to enrolling in Pre-Calculus. Though graphing utilities are available online, it is still recommended that students have their own graphing calculator for the course.
