Agenda – Precalculus

AP Precalculus Summer 2024 Eliel Gonzalez                                                      

This course is for teachers preparing to teach the new AP Precalculus program.  A discussion regarding course purpose and philosophy will help guide our week’s work. We will fully debrief the new Course and Exam Description (CED), review content and pedagogy in course topics, and explore AP exam format and  questions, AP resources,  use of graphing calculators, and classroom activities to maximize learning.

The primary content focus will be on the 3 assessed units, which include:

Unit 1: Polynomials and Rational Functions,

Unit 2:  Exponential and Logarithmic Functions

Unit 3:  Trigonometric and Polar Functions.

Participants are asked to bring a laptop, a graphing calculator and a Precalculus textbook.
