Pre Calculus in Room 603
PreCalculus builds on the concepts of Algebra 1, Algebra 2 and Geometry, and adds new topics such as trigonometric functions, analytic trigonometry, applications of trigonometry, systems, matrices, analytic geometry in two and three dimensions, discrete mathematics, and an introduction to calculus.
Parts of our PreCalculus work will be accomplished in a "flipped class" environment. This means you will watch videos and complete tasks at home to learn the concepts. In class, we will continue to build upon the concepts you learned at home by participating in activities individually and in groups.

Graphing Calculators
 Yes it is a requirement to get some kind of graphing calculator.
 I recommend the TI83 model(s) if you don't plan on doing higherlevel math after high school.
 I recommend the TI84 model(s) if you plan on doing some higherlevel math after high school.
 I recommend the TInSpire CX CAS (right) if you are majoring in a math or science field. This is the future of Texas Instruments.
 Yes there are amazing apps and tools online. Those are helpful with homework and classwork. However, smartphones & laptops are not allowed for any of my assessments or any state tests.
 Most college professors don't allow smartphones and laptops on assessments.
