Foundations of Pre-calculus

A year-long course designed to strengthen and expand the concepts and skills learned in algebra and provide further development of the concept of a function. Students will expand their knowledge and understanding of linear, quadratic, and exponential functions and be introduced to logarithmic and trigonometric functions. Students will analyze and identify relationships among functions using multiple representations (verbal, numeric, graphic, and algebraic). Students will apply mathematical skills to make meaningful connections to the physical world and write about their conclusions.
