This 6-week course prepares students for Calculus by introducing and reinforcing algebraic skills required for success in that course. The first three weeks will focus on simplifying expressions, solving equations and inequalities, functions, graphing, transformations, higher degree polynomial functions, and inverse functions. The last three weeks will focus on transcendental functions (exponential and logarithmic) and trigonometry. Students will learn and apply fundamental identities and the Unit Circle to a variety of problems, apply transformations to graph trigonometric functions. Building upon that, students will be expected to apply other trigonometric identities (addition/subtraction, double & half angle formulas, sum-to-product, and product-to-sum) to solve a variety of problems. The course concludes with inverse trig functions, applying the laws of sines and cosines, vectors, and representing complex numbers in trigonometric form.
Pre-Requisites for Jesuit Students: Open to current 11th-grade students earning an A in regular Algebra 2 or B in Algebra 2H and subject to instructor approval. The course may also be taken to remediate a Pre-Calculus grade earned during the regular academic year.
Pre-Requisites for Non-Jesuit Students: Must have successfully completed Algebra 2 or Integrated Math 1, 2, and 3.
