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.
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 a pen-enabled tablet are required. Students should expect 4 hours per week of synchronous meetings using Zoom. Students will have access to alternatives to synchronous participation if conditions require.
Successful completion of high school algebra II or integrated III, or college algebra or algebraic thinking
