About This Course
ACE Approved 2023
Beginning with a review of algebraic operations, this Precalculus course emphasizes solving and graphing equations that involve linear, polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Throughout Precalculus, you will also learn to graph trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions and how to use the family of trigonometric identities.
What You'll Learn
Perform operations on real numbers and polynomials.
Simplify algebraic, rational, and radical expressions.
Solve linear and quadratic equations and inequalities.
Solve word problems involving linear and quadratic equations and inequalities.
Solve polynomial, rational, and radical equations and applications.
Solve and graph linear, quadratic, absolute value, and piecewisedefined functions.
Perform operations with functions as well as find composition and inverse functions.
Graph quadratic, the square root, cubic, and cube root functions.
Graph and find zeros of polynomial functions.
Graph quadratic functions by completing the square, using the vertex formula, and using transformations.
Solve and graph exponential and logarithmic equations.
Express angle measure in degrees or radians.
Evaluate and simplify trigonometric expressions.
Know the six trigonometric functions and how to evaluate those trigonometric functions using positions on the unit circle with respect to the right triangle.
Graph trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions.
Use trigonometric functions to solve a right triangle and apply the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines to solve triangles that are acute or obtuse.
Solve systems of linear equations and inequalities.
Model and solve applications using linear systems.
Evaluate and find partial sums of a series.
Evaluate and find sums of an arithmetic sequence and a geometric sequence.
