Honors Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry

Course MC54| Mr. Jason Zegestowsky

Juniors, Seniors 1.0 Credit

This course is designed to prepare students for AP Calculus AB in their senior year or a Calculus course in college. The course consists of a review of algebraic functions, analytic geometry, and extends the students understanding of exponential and logarithmic functions. Students explore the general properties of functions, functional notation, symmetry, inverse functions, and the graphs of several classes of functions. Students extend their study of trigonometric ratios, functions, and equations. Students will learn to solve triangles and trigonometric equations through the use of trigonometric laws, formulas, and identities. Time permitting, the course will conclude with an introduction to the notion of a limit and the definition of continuity of a function to ease the transition to the study of calculus.

Prerequisite: Students must have completed Honors Geometry/Introduction to Trigonometry with a minimum final grade of B or have an A- in Geometry/Introduction to Trigonometry and have the approval of the math department.
