Pre-calculus is problem-solving-based overview of functions that model change. We will cover a variety of functions (linear, polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic) and represent them algebraically, numerically, graphically, and verbally. There will be an emphasis on context-based problem solving and collaborative learning. Pre-calculus is designed for students who have an interest in mathematical reasoning and for those who need a more substantial preparation for further study in business, the social sciences, math, or science. Pre-calculus I along with pre-calculus II (offered Spring 2017) will complete your preparation for Calculus. You are expected to come into the course with a strong foundation in intermediate algebra (or high school algebra 2 or integrated 3). A graphing calculator is required for the course.
This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:
Science, teaching, mathematics, economics, business.
Credits per quarter
Successful completion of high school Algebra 2 or Integrated 3 or Intermediate Algebra.
- Enhanced Online Learning - This offering requires access to web-based tools, but use of these tools does not displace any face-to-face instruction.
