Enrollment requires both semesters of Algebra II or Integrated Math III, with a grade of "C" or better, or approval of Mathematics Department Chairperson.
This course covers the first half of Precalculus with Trigonometry, a year-long study of elementary functions (including linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions), trigonometry (including trigonometric functions, analytical geometry, linear systems, vectors, sequences, and series), conics, and related topics that provide students with the kind of preparation required for college mathematics. The course may be used for the purpose of helping students make up credit and/or improve the grade from a prior attempt at the course. The course covers portions of the Common Core State Standards domains that fall under the conceptual categories of Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Modeling, and Geometry, including Seeing Structure in Expressions, Arithmetic with Polynomials and Rational Expressions, Creating Equations, Interpreting Functions, Building Functions, Trigonometric Functions, Reasoning with Equations and Inequalities, and The Complex Number System.
