Precalculus

Prerequisite:  Successful completion of Geometry and Algebra II
 
This is the fourth math class in a sequential program of study. The main focus is on functions. Students will learn to analyze, and graph functions by hand and with graphing calculators. Student will be able to determine when various functions fit the data or model, characteristics of functions, transformations,  and  determine domains and ranges.  Types of functions studied include but are not limited to polynomials (constants, linear, quadratic, cubic…),  absolute values, step functions,  piecewise functions, rational functions, exponential functions, logarithms, and trigonometric functions. Students will learn  the use of graphing calculators as a mathematical tool.  A graphing calculator is required  for this class and will be supplied for students without access to one.
