Pre-Calculus with Trigonometry (Second Edition)

Pre-Calculus with Trigonometry is designed as the fourth course in a five-year sequence of college preparatory mathematics for high school students. In addition to covering all of the key conceptsfound in traditional trigonometry, pre-calculus, or math analysis courses, it emphasizes several big ideas that form a foundation for calculus and other college mathematics curricula. The key ideas presented are:

  • Transformations of functions
  • Periodic functions and their graphs
  • Area under a curve as a foundation for integration
  • Inverses, exponentials, and logarithmic equations and applications
  • Limits to infinity and at a point
  • Properties of functions including continuity, increasing vs. decreasing, and concavity
  • Average rates of change and instantaneous rates of change as a foundation for derivatives
  • Other graphical systems including polar and parametric
  • Applications of vectors and trigonometric functions
  • Algebraic fluency and simplification techniques
  • Modeling using a variety of functions
