 Precalculus: This course is a dual enrollment course offered in collaboration with Westchester Community College (WCC) through its Advanced College Experience (ACE). This course offers problem solving beyond quadratics with emphasis on the analytical geometry leading to the calculus. Topics of study include polynomial functions, conic sections, matrices, and limits. The final exam is a departmental exam. Students must pay the (discounted) fee for WCC credit to receive a Westchester Community College transcript.

Please note that the timelines listed below are a guide. Teachers modify their pacing based on student needs in order to ensure concept mastery.
