Prerequisites: successful completion of Algebra II
Course focus and description:
This course strengthens algebra skills and investigates such topics as data analysis, exponential and
other polynomial functions, probability, vectors, analytic geometry, parametric, polar, circular and
trigonometric functions through both traditional and application based methods.
It is highly recommended if pursuing a field in business or science.
Student Learning Outcomes:
By the end of this school year, students should be able to:
illustrate and identify a variety of angles in degree and distinguish between the 6 trigonometric ratios
and do such computations within triangles;
recognize and know the characteristics of the 6
formulate variations of and do computations
periodic functions;
with trigonometric identities and composite
argument properties;
identify and calculate parametric functions;
derive and use general triangular formulas;
differentiate among combined sinusoids and find them recognize, manipulate and transform various
algebraically;
polynomial functions algebraically and
graphically;
create such appropriate functions from realistic
find probabilities, expected values,
scenarios;
permutations and combinations of events;
illustrate, compute and interpret vectors;
define and convert between polar and
Cartesian coordinates.
Major texts, literature, or resources required daily:
Precalculus with Trigonometry textbook – provided;
TI graphing calculator – provided if needed;

Homework Revisions – resubmit, for a perfect score 
Write a complete sentence specifying your error
Re-do each exercise marked with a slash on a new paper.
Re-do it entirely, as if you never did the exercise before.
Write another couple of complete sentences for each corrected exercise explaining your solution process
Attendance, participation, and work make-up policy:
Attendance is mandatory unless excused by the administration, as indicated in the Kamehameha Schools Maui
handbook. Acquire work before a scheduled absence in order to keep up with the pace of the class. Days
allowed to hand in missed work due to excused absence is equal to days missed. Active participation is
encouraged as part of grade and for deeper comprehension of material presented.
Expected classroom behaviors:
Each person should conduct themselves properly, morally and respectfully, following the regulations set forth in
the Kamehameha Schools Maui handbook, always striving towards the values of stewardship in Princess
Pauahi’s will (aloha, ʻimi naʻauao, ʻike pono, kuleana, hoʻomau, haʻahaʻa, mālama). Consequences are
according to our school rules as well.
