This is a four week course designed for students to analyze functions seen in a standard Pre-Calculus course. Students will primarily focus on functions that include linear, polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions. Students will focus on the key properties and graphs of these functions. There will be an emphasis on applications as these topics are covered.
Graphing calculators will be extremely useful to demonstrate concepts, to facilitate problem solving, and to verify results of problems solved algebraically.
Student must have completed Algebra 2. This 4-week course covers functions that include linear, polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions. Trigonometry is not covered as part of this course.
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
Reason abstractly and quantitatively and ask useful questions.
Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
Model with mathematics and use appropriate tools strategically.
Learn to communicate precisely to others
Student must have access to a high-speed (DSL or cable) Internet connection, including a computer with sound and Java applet support, Microsoft Excel or Google Spreadsheet, a media player that can play Windows Media Player (WMA) and RealPlayer (RM) files, and a scanner or digital camera/phone. Access to a Graphing Calculator (TI-83/TI-84) is recommended
