What Is It
The subject of precalculus this a subset of mathematics that acts as a prerequisite for calculus. This can include, but is not limited to, introductory trigonometry, analytic geometry, introduction to vector and matrix operations, and algebraic functions such as exponents and logarithms. If this seems like a vague description, that’s because it is. Every institution and textbook publisher have their own definitions of what constitutes precalculus specifically as opposed to its corequisite trigonometry and its prerequisites algebra 1, algebra 2, and geometry.
As a prerequisite to calculus and differential equations, almost every traditional college student will take precalculus. The functions studied in precalculus have broad applications from engineering to finance. The plethora of topics covered in this topic can increase the overall success a student or professional can achieve in class or in a career.
