1 Unit
Grades: 12

Pre-calculus 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, probability, number theory, limits, and the introduction of derivatives.
Upon successfully completing the course, students should have mastered the following concepts:
Perform operations on functions including composition and inverses.
Graph, evaluate, and solve exponential and logarithmic 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.
Convert between Cartesian and polar forms; graph equations in polar coordinates.
Graph and solve quadratic equations that include conic sections.
Calculate probabilities, combinations, and permutations.
Calculate summations and limits of functions.
Relate analytical operations of limits, slope of a tangent line, and the definition of a derivative.
