Class Description

In this class, we shall discuss in depth the various mathematics concepts that are designed to prepare you to take calculus. This course is sometimes referred to as Pre-calculus. You will solidify your understanding of algebraic and trigonometric principles in addition to coverage of matrices, set theory and functions. Together these topics will form a solid foundation that you will be able to rely on when you move on to study calculus.

I do not assume that you have prior knowledge of these concepts and instead take a step-by-step approach towards teaching these concepts. This course will cover the same topics that you would see in more traditional class settings, but in a simplified and more personalized setting that allows you to study at your own pace.
