Welcome to Pre-AP Pre-Calculus! I'm Ms. Hamilton, and I'm excited to be your teacher. Pre-Cal has a lot of elements in its curriculum that are different and cool. Basically, there are two big "chunks" that compose Pre-Cal: Algebra and Trigonometry. This works very nicely for us because there are two semesters for us to take the grand tour of Pre-Cal. In fact, the first half of the year will earn you a College Algebra: Calculus Track (MATH 1414) credit for those of you taking this class for college credit. The second half of the year will earn you a Pre-Calculus II (MATH 2312) credit. If you are not taking this class for college credit, don't worry. Working through these two big pieces will earn you a Pre-Calculus credit on your high school transcript and will give you a great math background to take with you to college and beyond. LEAP kids, you will earn your high school credit as well. We are all going to have a great year!
I look forward to meeting each of you next week!
P.S. I'm so excited for y'all to be my new group of fledgelings! Don't worry, that statement will make more sense next week :)
