Course Description:This course is an extension of the concepts learned in Algebra II and an introduction to pre-calculus concepts. The course is comprised of the following three units of study: algebra, trigonometry, and statistics. The algebra unit will include a study of linear relations and functions, systems of equations and inequalities, polynomial and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and the nature of graphs. The trigonometric unit will include a study of trigonometric functions, graphs and inverses of trigonometric functions, and trigonometric identities and equations. The statistics unit will include a study of descriptive statistics and probability. Real-world applications will be incorporated when appropriate. Students will use graphing calculators, computers, and other appropriate technology. There is no SOL test given for this course.
