Using a blend of live teaching, and video lessons by the faculty this summer precalculus class is a rigorous, problem-solving-based class that includes elements of Precalculus I and Precalculus II. Students will benefit from live and interactive lessons with the faculty and have access to faculty-developed videos that students may view as needed or as they are able.  In addition, the faculty and tutors will be available for one-on-one virtual support. Students who successfully complete this class will be mathematically prepared for Calculus I and programs that include calculus like Matter and 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 opportunities for collaborative learning. This precalculus class 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 class 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 or other graphing software is required for the class.Students are encouraged to have reliable internet, access to a camera-enabled device and a small white board and white board markers.

Our work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas, Zoom, Desmos, and YouTube. Students have the opportunity to attend synchronous meetings. If conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings Narrated PowerPoint presentations of each lesson are available for them to view, as well as additional topic related videos.
