This course is intended to build upon and extend existing algebra and geometry skills while preparing the student for a calculus course. It is important that the student have a solid understanding of algebra II and geometry before attempting to take Precalculus, as these sets of mathematical skills will be called upon frequently throughout the course.

The concepts of mathematical relations and functions and their use to model, describe, and solve problems are fundamental to mathematics. Through the use of new functions defined in trigonometry (the study of triangles), the algebra and geometry involved in analytic geometry, and with the aid of technology, you will learn how to become a more effective problem-solver.

In this Precalculus course, you will be exposed to the inner workings of many things we use in everyday life.
