Description:  This is a high school credit course for students who have completed Algebra 2. This course will include a review of algebraic concepts, as well as a refresher on logic, reasoning, and proofs. We’ll study all manner of trigonometric concepts including functions and equations. There will also be emphasis on visualizing these operations through the unit circle. Concepts that have been studied before in lower level classes will be revisited in a more advanced form including logarithms, polynomial factoring, word problems and the sets of numbers. Finally, there will be introductory calculus lessons that include conic sections (and how to define them as loci), and the binomial theorem.

Materials needed: Saxon Advanced Mathematics, 2nd Ed. Textbook, calculator (graphing calculator TI‐83 recommended), compass, protractor, ruler
