**Course Description: **

This Precalculus video course puts together the many concepts taught in Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 in order to prepare students for Calculus and other subsequent math courses. In general, this course covers unit circle trigonometry, analytical trigonometry, right triangle trigonometry, the polar coordinate system, vectors, complex numbers, proofs by mathematical induction, the fundamental theorem of algebra, and an introduction to linear algebra. In each of the lessons, students are exposed to the basics skills of the concepts and challenged to use and improve their critical thinking skills.

**The course includes:**

12+ hours of video

5 units

34 instructional videos

34 blank pdf notes for students to use and fill in while watching the instructional videos

34 practice worksheets for students to practice and master the concepts being taught

34 answers key and videos (I explain step by step how to arrive at the correct answer)

350+ practice problems and step by step resolutions

5 tests (1 at the end of each unit)

5 test answer keys (one for each unit test)

**Course Goals: **Upon completion of this course, students will be well prepared for Calculus and have an introduction to a Linear Algebra course. Students will have a solid foundation on trigonometry, vectors, and matrices. Students will not only be able to use these skills to solve problems, but they will also be able to apply them to different situations.

**Target Audience: **This course is for students who have mastered the concepts taught in a traditional Algebra 2 course and are planning to take Calculus, or for those currently enrolled in a Precalculus class but need additional practice with the concepts being taught.

**Technology:** Although the course is taught such that a calculator is not necessary, a student may be more comfortable using one. If a student chooses to use a calculator make sure it has trigonometric functionality (a basic scientific calculator would not suffice).
