After spending years creating new lesson plans every day I decided to record my lesson so that my student and you could benefit from them, if you are sick, need a refresher, or just want to learn on your own.
In this I will break down the sections into a warmup or intro, notes, examples and then homework. You will have plenty of practice problems to try on your own, check your answers or watch me complete. In addition to the assinged work, you will also have online quizzes to test your skills after each section and topic.
In addition to online quizzes I also provide the full print out version of test and quizzes I gave to my students in addition to the semester and final exam review and actual tests.
While Precalculus courses can vary in this precalculus course I will cover Functions, Polynomials, Rational Expressions, Trigonometry, Analytic Trigonometry, Applications of Trigonometry, Analytic Geometry and the Limit. You will have everything you will need to know as either a refresher of precalculus or to move on to calculus. I hope you enjoy!!
Now you have everything you would need to learn or maybe even teach PreCalculus.
You Ready? Lets do this!
2.) Polynomials

21.) Introduction
Welcome to Functions our first chapter in PreCalculus Simplified. Below you will see our Assignment Organizer, Checklist and Notes to download and/or print.
The assignment organizer is used within my class to record students completion of work in addition to add goals and reflect on the unit.
The checklist is provided to give context to the types of problems that students will need to know for each section
Lastly, the notes provide a condensed version of the notes that are provided within the chapter. Even though each section has detailed guided notes provided the condensed notes keep everything taught in the chapter in one place.
