Trigonometry & Advanced Math Topics

This course is designed to solidify students’ algebraic skills while exploring various new topics. A primary focus will be on the study of functions. Different types of functions that may be studied include Polynomial, Rational, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic.  One semester of trigonometry is included.   Other topics that may be covered include conic sections, polar coordinates, and parametric equations.
