PREREQUSITE: Successful completion (C or higher) of Algebra II with Trigonometry.

Pre-Calculus introduces trigonometry and provides a complete mathematical background for the study of Calculus. The class focuses on prerequisite concepts such as functions (polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric), conic sections, graphing, solving equations, solving inequalities, sequences and series, matrix algebra, complex numbers, and parametric equations. Students leave the class with an understanding of many of the prerequisite topics that arise in Calculus and a solid foundation for further study. Assessments include daily quizzes, weekly unit tests, and a final exam. Homework will be assigned daily. 

Course Credit
This class meets Common Core standards for Pre-Calculus and is eligible for credit pending approval from the student’s school. It is important to confirm with your child's home school that credit can be earned for this class. Given the accelerated pace of this class, each day is equivalent to one or two weeks of classes during the regular school year. Therefore, absences can be detrimental to a student’s progress and grade. Students who miss three or more class days will no longer be eligible to receive course credit. Please complete our Course Credit Release Form and return to the Landon Summer office prior to the start of the course in order to earn credit. 

A textbook will be provided, but must be returned to Landon Summer at the conclusion of the class. A deposit equal to the value of the book will be held in your Landon Summer account and removed when the book is received by August 13 in acceptable condition (students may not write in book). You may also choose to purchase the book at the beginning of the class, in which case the deposit will become a charge. Please contact the Landon Summer office if you would like to purchase the textbook.
