PreAP PreCalculus

Welcome to PreAP PreCalculus!

Don’t let the name scare you. In this course we will pick up where Algebra 2 left off, but not without reviewing what you learned there. You will see all of the same functions with the addition of these functions: polynomial, piece-wise, step, more rational, and trigonometry! Trigonometry goes way beyond SOH CAH TOA. In fact, we will spend an entire semester learning about Trigonometry.

If you are absent, I need you to go the link below and get the notes from the day you were absent. Do this before you return to class. If you are out for Extra-Curricular, this is where you will find the notes. I will post them by the afternoon everyday. Using your phone, go to the link and the bookmark it for easy access. PreCal is like a small town, if you blink while going through, you will get lost. This is my attempt at helping you not to get lost when you blink.

Remember:

days out for illness, etc. = days to make it up  

days out for school stuff = due when you walk in the door
