Successful completion of Precalculus I, Precalculus: One-dimensional models, or equivalent.

This course completes the preparation for calculus, continuing the study of functions with a focus on trigonometric functions, rational functions, parametric curves, vectors, and polar coordinates. Each area will be approached algebraically, graphically, numerically, and verbally, and collaborative learning will be emphasized.  Context will usually be provided by examples in physics, and students interested in earning credit in physics should register for Precalculus Models in Physics which pairs this course with a study of momentum.
