This is a summer course that introduces students to concepts seen in a Pre-Calculus course. It is intended to prepare students for advanced mathematics courses. Specifically, students will primarily explore functions that include linear, polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions. This course will also cover select topics from advanced trigonometry including trigonometric and circular functions, their graphs, and trigonometric identities and equations. There will be an emphasis on solving real world applications throughout the course.
Please note that this course is an abbreviated course which lasts 8 weeks. Therefore, the course does not cover a full year’s curriculum with the same depth that is covered in a year-long course. Students are expected to work approximately 8-10 hours per week. In addition, if the student is taking this course for credit recovery or initial credit, it is strongly advised that you check with the student's school to confirm that the topics covered (see course syllabus) match those required by the school. You may also want to confirm with the school the process for receiving credits, which may involve an assessment administered separately by the school.
