Satisfactory performance on a placement test
Recommendation of the teacher
This course is a more rigorous approach to the topics in Pre-Calculus using both an analytical and a graphical approach. An emphasis will also be placed on relating the polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions to data analysis. Students will be introduced to limits, continuity, parametric and polar equations, and matrices. This course prepares students for Honors and / or AP Calculus. A graphing calculator is required, and any TI-83 or any TI-84 is recommended.
Please Note: Placement in all math courses requires a teacher recommendation. Several courses also require a placement test or a prerequisite score on the PSAT. Teachers will arrange placement tests when necessary for qualified students. All incoming freshmen will be placed in the appropriate course based on their performance on the entrance exam and review of their current report card.
Most courses require students to own a graphing calculator. The TI-83 or TI-84 family of calculators is strongly recommended.
Students must complete one course beyond Algebra II to be considered for admission to the N.C. University System.
