MAD501: Precalculus (2021)

Pre-Calculus (year-long) is aligned to DoDEA's content standards and the College and Career-Ready Standards for Mathematical Practices. This course is a rigorous option taken after Algebra 2 and prior to AP Calculus AB/BC in high school or in preparation for a collegiate calculus course. In this course, students will analyze relations, functions and their graphs (to include polynomial, rational, trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic, and piece-wise functions), and define trigonometric ratios using the unit circle and analyze trigonometric functions. These concepts build on what was learned in Algebra 2 while also setting a foundation for skills necessary to be successful in college-level Calculus I or high school AP Calculus AB or BC.
