The purpose of this advanced Pre-Calculus Honors course is to emphasize the properties of functions and other skills necessary for the study of calculus. This course provides an in-depth study and preparation which is specific to the skills needed for success in AP Calculus and in thinking critically to apply functions to real situations. Topics include, but are not limited to, polynomial, rational, exponential, inverse, logarithmic, and circular functions; sequences and series; theory of limits; vectors; conic sections; polar coordinates; symbolic logic; mathematical induction; matrix algebra; trigonometry of right triangles, trigonometric equations; solutions of oblique triangles; and trigonometric identities. This course is strongly recommended for the college-bound student pursuing a discipline that is mathematically related. A scientific calculator is required for some portions of the course.
Honors level classes can expect more rigorous requirements for assignments and assessments.
Prerequisite: “A” in Honors Algebra 2
