Welcome to Honors Pre-Calculus!

Honors Pre-Calculus is an exciting course. We finish our study of linear and quadratic equations and use this knowledge on higher order polynomials. We will learn how changing an equation of a function will change the graph of the equation. We'll continue our study of trigonometry and solve many practical problems. We'll solve problems ranging from navigational to aeronautical to architectural in nature. A thorough review of conic sections will occur during the year as will a study of polar coordinates, complex numbers, and exponential/logarithmic functions.
