Pre-calculus (02110) WA

Precalculus is a full-year, high school credit course that is intended for the student who has successfully mastered the core algebraic and conceptual geometric concepts covered in the prerequisite courses: Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. The course primarily focuses on the skills and methods of analytic geometry and trigonometry while investigating further relationships in functions, quadratics, probability, and number theory.

Upon successfully completing the course, the student should have mastered the following concepts:

  • Perform operations on functions including composition and inverses.

  • Graph, evaluate, and solve exponential, logarithmic, polynomial and rational functions and equations.

  • Utilize the unit circle in evaluating trigonometric identities; prove trigonometric identities; graph trigonometric functions and their inverses.

  • Solve application problems involving right triangle trigonometry, special right triangles, and law of sines and cosines.

  • Graph and operate with complex numbers in the complex plane.

  • Graph and solve quadratic equations that include conic sections.

  • Calculate probabilities, combinations, and permutations.

  • Use matrices to represent relationships and solve problems.
