Pre-Calculus and Trigonometry is intended to follow Algebra II and extend students’ knowledge of function characteristics, equation solving and trigonometric concepts. Students enrolled in this course are assumed to have mastered Algebra II concepts and have had some exposure to trigonometry. This course will serve as appropriate preparation for calculus. Graphing calculators will be used to enhance student learning.

It is strongly recommended that students own a graphing calculator for this course (the teacher will suggest a certain type), but it is possible to complete the course without one.
