The pre-Calculus course is designed to prepare learners for a calculus course. This course is taught so that students will acquire a solid foundation in algebra and trigonometry. The course concentrates on the variety of functions that are important to the study of calculus.
This is a full-length online learning Pre-Calculus course for passionate learners. In this course, learners will extend topics introduced in Algebra II, Geometry, and learn to manipulate and apply more advanced functions and algorithms. This course provided a mathematically sound foundation for students who intend to study Calculus.
Learning course material, such as PowerPoint of lecture notes, Interactive Webpages, and practice problems with solutions and/or discussion, are provided for learners, throughout the designated platform. Learners progress through the course at their own pace and are expected to review, make notes, review notes regularly, and making a recording of concept understanding.
Each learner can contact their instructor via email with any questions and/or concerns at any time. Online review sessions can be scheduled as well to prepare for the graded assessments, which include homework, chapter exams, a cumulative mid-term, and final assignment revision.
Instructors use virtual classrooms, allowing text, assigned text, voice, screen sharing, and whiteboard interaction. Learners are strongly to work on the course at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week (for 18 weeks enrollment), and email their instructors at least once per week.
