PreCalculus A / B
Studying higher algebra and trigonometry leads to a better understanding of calculus. This is a two-semester class. In Precalculus A, you will explore and build your knowledge of inverse, trigonometric, and logarithmic functions; trigonometric identities; complex numbers; and vectors. You will also apply this knowledge to real-world situations. Precalculus encompasses the rudiments of calculus, analytical geometry, and trigonometry. In Precalculus B, you will explore and build your knowledge of conic sections, matrices, sequences, induction, and probability and apply this knowledge to real-world situations. You will also study basic concepts of calculus, such as the limits of a function and area under the curve.
