Honors Precalculus AB
This course will provide a thorough study of functions, including piecewise, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions. Students will develop the skills and strategies needed to design function models and apply these models to real world situations. Students will expand their skills in graphing and analyzing functions. Students will solve linear systems of 3 x 3 and greater, as well as 2 x 2 non-linear systems of equations. The mathematics of matrices, vectors, complex numbers and conic sections may also be examined. Students will focus on a multi-representational perspective of mathematics, creating a knowledge and conceptual base for studying Calculus. This course will also include more advanced pre-Calculus topics.
Graphing calculator required.
