Grade Level: 10,11 Course: 1 Year Credit: 1 Prerequisite: Algebra 1 Honors or teacher approval if enrolled in Algebra 1 
This course begins with a review of Algebra 1 Honors topics, followed by the study of linear functions, complex numbers, quadratic equations and functions, variation, conic sections, exponential and logarithmic functions, sequences and series, permutations and combinations, and matrices and determinants. This course is required for students who wish to take ACCP PreCalculus. Students will be expected to keep up with the daily assignments and must have the ability to work independently outside the classroom. 
INTRODUCTION TO COLLEGE ALGEBRA 
Grade Level: 11,12 Credit: 1 Course: 1 Year Prerequisite: Successful Completion of Algebra II 
This course will begin with a review of Algebra 2 to provide the student with a solid foundation for college level mathematics courses. Students will then progress to more advanced concepts such as basic trigonometric functions, triangle trigonometry, conic sections, exponential and logarithmic functions, and sequences and series. Students will also be introduced to topics from Probability, Statistics, and College Algebra. This course will also focus on ACT preparation prior to all national testing dates.
