Honors Advanced PreCalculus

This course is designed for students to develop, combine and extend concepts from Honors Geometry and Honors Algebra II to higher mathematical theory. Diverse applications will be explored.  Graphing calculators are used throughout the course as well as other technology. This rigorous mathematics course will prepare students for AP Honors Calculus.  Students will study such topics as: structure and application of real and complex number systems; analytic geometry; logarithmic and exponential functions; circular and trigonometric functions; complex numbers; remainder and factor theorems; polynomial equations of higher degree; parametric equations; polar coordinates and equations; sequences, series and limits. An independent research project and a presentation is required.
