3 COURSE DESCRIPTIONThis course combines many of the trigonometric, geometric, and algebraic techniques needed to prepare students for the study of calculus and strengthens their conceptual understanding of problems and mathematical reasoning in solving problems. These standards take a functional point of view toward those topics. Students will engage in intellectual activities that include analyzing, classifying, planning, drawing on mathematical and scientific ideas and exploring various ways to approach and solve a problem. This course promotes achievement of the California State Trigonometry and Math Analysis standards.
