Prerequisite: Algebra II
Pre-Calculus covers a variety of advanced mathematical topics. Concepts introduced in Algebra II are reinforced and extended. The course studies trigonometry and its many applications. Other topics studied include analytic geometry, vectors, matrices, sequences and series, logarithms and exponents, complex numbers, probability, and mathematical induction. Emphasis is on problem-solving techniques, relationships between mathematics, and other fields of study. Graphing calculators and computer software are used extensively.
