PreCalculus A: Algebra Review & Trigonometry

Course Description:

This course is the first in a two-course sequence that broadens student understanding of functions and mathematical models of real-world phenomena. This course will build on student understanding of geometry and algebra, extending their knowledge in the field of trigonometry. The course contains units on functions and their properties, geometric foundations and right triangle trigonometry, applications of trigonometric and circular functions and their graphs, as well as trigonometric function properties, identities, and equations. The majority of the course is asynchronous with a few synchronous elements.
