AP Precalculus

Students intending to enroll in AP Calculus in the future have the choice to participate in a Self-paced Honors Precalculus course. This AP Precalculus class will focus on both the Precalculus material and readiness for the AP exam. 

This AP course is designed to provide a comprehensive study of functions, which are the basis of calculus and other higher mathematics courses. The students will study the properties and graphs of trigonometric, polynomial, rational, inverse, exponential and logarithmic functions, inequalities, polar coordinates, complex numbers, conic sections, matrices, vectors, sequences, and series.

Weekly Live Class

Weekly live Zoom meeting meets every Tuesday, 9 am to 10 am PST (12 pm to 1 pm EST). Class will run from Aug 21, 2023 through early May 2024. Breaks to be determined.

Cost

Early Bird Special: $625. After June 30: $675. 

Prerequisite

All students should have successfully completed Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II. If you have not completed the prerequisite, please sign up for Honors Algebra II. See how AP Precalculus fits into your mathematics pathways.

Course Delivery

A. Online platform. Students access class materials on Canvas, and College Board AP Classroom any time most convenient for them. All class materials are available 24/7. 

  • Teacher produced video lectures for each section. 

  • Weekly assignment, quizzes, chapter tests and exams

  • Free Response Questions will be graded by the instructor.

  • College Board designed practice test questions. 

 

B. One optional live Zoom session per week with the instructor that focus on key concepts, challenging assignments, AP multiple choice and free response questions. Attendance is optional and recording will be made accessible for those who cannot attend. 

Technical Requirements

  • Computer, high-speed internet access, e-mail capability, with camera

  • Smartphone or scanner to save multiple handwritten pages as a single PDF file

  • Graphing calculator – TI-89, TI-Nspire, or TI-83/84 Plus 

Why take this class? 

The course: 

  • Prepares students for calculus (including AP Calculus AB and BC) and to succeed in both STEM and non-STEM majors. 

  • Students who want to complete a fourth year of math in high school.  Students who take math all 4 years of high school are 140.5% more likely to be considered “college ready” and “calculus ready.”
