The course consists of topics in Trigonometry, Advanced Algebra, Data Analysis and Calculus. Students will solve problems algebraically and graphically, using graphing calculators and/or other technology. The knowledge acquired in this class can be applied in several areas including engineering, economics, the physical sciences, and mathematical modeling.


Course Description

Recommended: B or better in Algebra 2/Trigonometry or Math Analysis. 


This course is recommended for those students planning to take Calculus.  The curriculum includes an in-depth algebraic and graphical analysis of different families of functions and their inverses, including polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, rational and trigonometric functions.  Rectangular, polar, and parametric forms of an equation will be taught in addition to vectors and their graphs.  Further study of topics introduced in earlier courses includes matrices and determinants, coordinate geometry, conic sections, series and sequences, binomial expansion, properties of radical expressions, complex numbers, de Moivre’s Theorem, limits (epsilon-delta), and an introduction to calculus.
