UC/CSU Approved (Pending)
10 units (2 semesters)
Prerequisite: Recommended Grade of B or higher in LC Math 3 or its equivalent.
Daily Homework: 30 - 45 minutes
This course is designed to expand on the mathematical content in LC Math 3 and prepare the serious student of mathematics for the study of calculus. In addition to the review of algebra, which is integrated throughout the course, the student will study advanced mathematical concepts in equations and inequalities as well as the analysis of functions and techniques for graphing polynomial, rational, radical, algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; conics; polar coordinates; discrete topics (matrices, vectors, recursion, and combinatorics); limits of functions; and an introduction to differential and integral calculus. The use of graphing calculators (model TI-83, 83+, or 84) is strongly recommended
