This Precalculus course is designed to incorporate the two traditional courses of trigonometry and analytic geometry. As the name suggests, the Precalculus course is intended to build upon existing algebra and geometry skills while preparing a student for the concepts he or she will be learning in a calculus course. It is important that a student has taken courses in algebra II and geometry before attempting to take Precalculus. Precalculus 1B will primarily cover the trigonometry and analytic geometry portion, while the first semester course, Precalculus 1A, centered more on parent functions and transformations of their graphs, sequences and series, and limits.
