This Summer Precalculus course is a rigorous, problem-solving-based, course that includes elements of Precalculus I and Precalculus II.  Students who successfully complete this course will be mathematically prepared for Calculus I and programs that include calculus like Matter and Motion or Models of Motion. We will cover a variety of functions (linear, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, rational, and trigonometric) and represent them algebraically, numerically, graphically, and verbally. In addition, students will work with polar coordinates and curves, parametric curves, and vectors. There will be an emphasis on context-based problem solving and collaborative learning. This precalculus course 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, science, math or  math education. You are expected to come into the course with a strong foundation in intermediate algebra (or high school algebra 2 or integrated 3). Algebraic Thinking is a good preparatory course for precalculus.   A graphing calculator is required for the course.
