Honors Pre-Calculus

In order to be ready for the 2014-2015 school year, students enrolled in Honors Pre-Calculus need to do some preparation and review over the summer to be successful in this course. Students should be proficient in the following before starting school in August:

  • combine like terms
  • distribute
  • solve a linear equation
  • factor quadratics
  • solve for a specific variable in an equation or formula
  • add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions without a calculator
  • simplify square roots without a calculator

 Within the first 5 days of school a quiz will be given on finding a least common denominator, adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions, and simplifying square roots with and without variables. A calculator will not be allowed on this quiz.

All students enrolled in honors math courses need to have a TI-83 or 84 graphing calculator. Please do not purchase a TI-89 or a Casio graphing calculator.
