Pre-calculus is the coursework required before a student takes either calculus or statistics, however, it is designed to challenge the student to greater heights. This means, while it covers material needed before calculus, it is not necessarily an easier course. Instead, it is designed to open a student’s mind to thinking analytically, critically, and mathematically. In addition, this course covers a wide breadth of knowledge, and will go in-depth in each concept, meaning there is more information in this course than students have been used to in previous courses.

While algebra and geometry were designed to ease students into the mathematical realm, pre-calculus uses this information and the skills students have gathered to fully immerse themselves in mathematical concepts and analytical thinking.
