Precalculus

Academic Year Mathematics

Our Precalculus class prepares students for a variety of college-level courses. Precalculus provides a deep exploration of trigonometry, complex numbers, and two- and three-dimensional vector spaces, with a special focus on how these areas of mathematics are related. This gives students a solid foundation for collegiate courses in calculus, linear algebra, multi-variable calculus, complex analysis, and physics. Many of the challenging problems of Precalculus come from contests such as AMC 12, AIME, and the Harvard-MIT Math Tournament.

Students completing Precalculus are ready for our Calculus course.

Textbook: Precalculus by Art of Problem Solving.

Hardcopy and temporary access to the online version of the textbook are included in the tuition and fees of this course.

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our Precalculus course.
"Our homeschooled son is extremely gifted in math and science.  He really feels at home at AoPS Academy.  Through coaching and personal attention at AoPS, he achieved a 5 in AP Calculus at 11 years old and a 4 in AP Statistics at 12.  He also achieved an 800 on SAT II math at 12 years old.  Our son feels very comfortable in the atmosphere of AoPS, where being gifted in math is not looked down on, but treated with respect.  He has truly found his peers at AoPS Academy. 

AoPS Academy allows my son to be himself, learn that there are other kids well advanced in math, and gives him the confidence to know that it is OK to be great in math, and that other people will respect and value his ability."
