This is the second of two courses that comprise Honors Precalculus. In this course, the student will continue their study higher-level mathematics. The student will review trigonometric concepts before being introduced to vectors and parametric equations. Next, the student will explore and solve problems involving polar coordinates and complex numbers. The student will continue their study of geometry by analyzing and transforming conic sections. Then, the student will explore and solve real-world exponential and logarithmic functions, sequences and series, probability, statistics, and data analysis problems. Finally, the student will examine calculus concepts including limits, derivatives, and the fundamental theorem of calculus in preparation for their study of calculus.
