Advanced Pre-Calculus is a college level I mathematics course. It covers a variety of topics, including algebraic functions such as polynomials, rationales, and radicals and their applications, transcendental functions such as exponential and logarithmic and their graphs, trigonometric functions and their applications, analytic trigonometry, analytic geometry, sequences and series, vector analysis, parametric and polar equations. Attention will be given to applying these topics to real-world problems and mathematical modeling. In addition, each of these topics will be emphasized using graphical, numerical, analytical, and verbal representations. Students who successfully complete this course will be prepared to move directly into AP Calculus AB. A TI-84 or N-Spire CX CAS calculator is required for this course.
