Precalculus Honors is a rigorous, fast-paced mathematics course that is designed to prepare the student for calculus or for college-level mathematics.  It is a step up from previous math courses and may require an adjustment period for some students, especially those students who have not had Math 3 recently or those who did not take the honors level Math 3 course.  Students who fall into this category should plan for regular tutoring to brush up on the algebra skills needed to be successful in the course.  Throughout the course, students will review and delve deeper into some previous concepts such as polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions.  In addition, we will cover trigonometry, polar coordinates, vectors, parametric equations, conics, sequences and series, and limits.
