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.
