Course Description and Purpose:  This course is designed for students interested in preparing for college level math courses. Students will be exposed to topics involving functions, trigonometry, and other concepts to help prepare them for calculus.

Required Material:  Graphing Calculator- We recommend the TI 84+.  If you are not able to purchase a new one, there are other options available.

Power Standards:

  • Students will identify and apply various strategies and different skill sets to solve problems.
  • Students will compare and contrast real, complex, vector, polar and parametric numbers.
  • Students will develop expressions, equations, and inequalities and use a variety of techniques to simplify/solve them.
  • Students will create, analyze, and interpret functions in order to compare relationships between their variables.
  • Students will create a model to predict appropriate behavior.
  • Students will apply their knowledge of geometry to prove and utilize trigonometric identities and applications.
  • Students will distinguish between counting methods to compute
               desired quantities.

Assessment & Grading


Formative Assessments:
  • 10% of the overall grade
  • May include homework assignments, in class assignments, and quizzes
Summative Assessments:
  • 90% of the overall grade
  • May include unit tests and projects
