Precalculus is a recommended prerequisite for Calculus, but you’ll apply the principles of precalculus in a variety of careers ranging from Mathematics and Business to Medicine, Engineering and Astrophysics.
Start off with a review of algebraic operations and linear and polynomial equations, then jump ahead into solving and graphing equations from linear and polynomial to exponential and logarithmic functions. Tackle trigonometric expressions and functions, learn how to model and solve applications using linear systems, and take on geometric sequences. By the time you’re done, you’ll be ready for the challenges of General Calculus I.
