This course covers all techniques, methods, and concepts usually covered in an algebra and trigonometry course, as well as the concepts presented in a traditional precalculus course. During the fall semester, students are introduced to advanced algebra concepts such as quadratic functions, polynomial functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and systems of linear and nonlinear equation systems. The second half of the year features a detailed study of trigonometry including graphs, trigonometric equations and trigonometric identities. Throughout the year, students expand their knowledge of algebra and geometry and become familiar with concepts that they will encounter in calculus. Students in this course usually go on to take Calculus.
