Length:Full Year  Class Period: Wednesday, period 1 
Description: This PreCalculus class will cover in a full year what a college level course covers in a semester. Topics included are function and their graphs, polynomial and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometry, systems of equations and inequalities, matrices and determinants, sequences, series, probability, and analytic geometry. Three to four lessons will be presented each week, and the student will be expected to complete and correct each week's assignments, with questions answered at the next class. The student will receive a CD containing the solutions manual, assignment notes, calculator instructions, and graph paper. Assignment notes, help videos, and other supplemental resources will be available online for all students on the CHAT math website. Note: This class will begin at 8:45 a.m. promptly each week instead of 9:00 a.m. Bring your coffee and be ready to hit the ground running! Additional note: I have had a request from a couple of students to hold this class from 8:00  9:45. If that time option would be preferable to you, please let Mrs. Nelson know. Note: After completing this class, students will be prepared to take the PreCalculus CLEP test if they so desire. (For test specifics, see http://clep.collegeboard.org/exam/precalculus.) Questions? Email Mrs. Nelson (address above). Tutor: Kim Nelson graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in Mathematics from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota.
