Honors Pre-Calculus

This course will give the student a solid grounding in the classes of functions that form the foundations of the study of Calculus.  These include: polynomial, rational, irrational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions.  A significant portion of the course is devoted to a comprehensive examination of trigonometry.  Arithmetic and geometric sequences and series are also studied.  The pace of the course is not a fast as in Pre-AP Calculus nor is the depth of analysis, but all previously learned algebra skills are assumed to be mastered.  Instruction in the use of graphing calculators is embedded in the curriculum and students are expected to have and use one.
