Precalculus I is problem-solving-based and rigorous 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, collaborative learning, and developing mathematical thinking. Students who successfully complete precaclulus I will be prepared for precalculus II.
Though the course will taught remotely, collaborative learning will be a fundamental component of the course. Reliable internet access and a graphing calculator, or other graphing software, are required for the course. Students are encouraged to have a camera-enabled device, a small dry-erase board, and markers or the ability to use the whiteboard in Zoom. Students should expect 3 hours per week of synchronous meetings using Zoom and Canvas. Students will have access to alternatives to synchronous sessions if necessary.
