Course Description

PreCalculus

Syllabus

PreCalculus (3162): (1 weighted high school math credit)
This course is an intensive, rigorous approach to mathematics designed to prepare students for college calculus. The first semester students will focus on the algebraic and geometric properties of polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions, and engage in discussions about how these models are represented in the real world. The second-semester students will learn the analytic properties of trigonometric functions and geometric conics, as well as learning the properties of polar coordinates, vectors, matrices, parametrics, and sequences and series. The course concludes with an introduction to calculus.

Applied Calculus

Syllabus

Applied Calculus (3175): (1 weighted high school math credit)
This course covers 1 semester of university-level applied calculus. Students will gain a foundation of calculus by studying the properties of limits and continuity, derivatives, integrals and differential equations with algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric expressions. Students will explore these topics with calculator labs, and applications to business, economics, life, and the physics of motion.
