# Course Overview

Studying higher algebra and trigonometry leads to a better understanding of calculus. In
Precalculus A, you will explore and build your knowledge of inverse, trigonometric, and
logarithmic functions; trigonometric identities; complex numbers; and vectors. You will
also apply this knowledge to real-world situations.

# Course Goals

Write a function that describes a relationship between two quantities.
Define and solve inverse functions, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, and
trigonometric functions.
Investigate exponential models and logarithmic models.
Use the unit circle to manipulate, solve, and explain symmetry and periodicity of
trigonometric functions.
Find unknown measurements in right triangles.
Examine and apply trigonometric identities.
Measure the magnitude of vectors and use vectors to represent velocity in models.
Apply vector operations of addition and multiplication to negative vectors.
Examine polar coordinates in graphs.
Perform advanced operations with complex numbers, including De Moivre’s Theorem.
Represent basic operations of complex numbers geometrically on the complex plane.
