Pre-Calculus Honors EVP
Learning Resources Required For This Course Are Available For Purchase From Our Online Bookstore.
Pre-Calculus Honors covers those topics common to most traditional pre-calculus courses (linear and quadratic functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, polar coordinates and vectors) but also incorporates topics including probability, statistics, and an introduction to limits. Applications to real world events and graphing calculators are also woven into the course extensively. Technology and graphing calculators are used extensively in this course to reinforce the concepts covered. All students must possess a TI-84 graphing calculator.
Access to a scanner or digital camera is necessary for this course as students will be required to submit work on assignments frequently throughout the semester/year. Usage of a graphing calculator is also a requirement in this course. Only the TI-84 family is supported by our instructors.
This course is a part of the honors track, and intentional focus will be on the required knowledge, critical thinking, and analytical skills needed to prepare a student to be successful in future upper-level and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
Recommended sequence for students wishing to pursue advanced math classes: MATH150, MATH250, MATH350, MATH450, followed by their choice of MATH500, MATH510, or MATH520.
