This course is required for students who intend to take Accelerated Pre-Calculus Honors or AP Calculus BC at the high school level. 42 Lemont High School Program of Studies

5 Pre-Calculus Grades Course Open To: Credit: 1.0 Prerequisite: Successful completion of Geometry and successful completion of, or current enrollment in, Trigonometry Description: This course is designed to prepare students for AP Calculus AB, helping them obtain a deeper mathematical comprehension of the material. It is a collaboration of material from previous courses, of which students should have a solid foundation, and new concepts. A variety of functions are studied, including linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, inverse and piece-wise. Additionally, the course correlates algebraic concepts with graphical representations of the material. The language of functions is used extensively. Course material also includes the study of series and sequences, conics and limits. Accelerated Pre-Calculus Honors Grades Course Open To: Credit: Honors credit Prerequisite: Grades of B or better in Accelerated Algebra II Honors, Accelerated Geometry Honors and Accelerated Trigonometry Honors Description: This course is a continuation of the accelerated mathematics sequence, introduces students to advanced mathematical concepts, and serves as a preparatory course for AP Calculus BC.
