Frequently Asked Questions
How is precalculus different from algebra?
While Precalculus and Algebra do have some overlaps, Pre-Calc will also include trigonometry concepts. Pre-Calc is intended to be a preparatory course to ensure students’ readiness for Calculus.
What is the difference between calculus and precalculus?
PreCalculus generally focuses on algebraic content mastery to help students prepare for Calculus. Upon completion of PreCalculus, students should be able to construct and follow proofs, handle basic trig (ie. sine, cosine, tangent), and be able to understand the real-world application of mathematical modeling.
In Calculus, you would be expected to handle integrals and derivatives. Students would be expected to define, evaluate, and manipulate these two points. They would also be expected to understand the relationship between these two points.
How do I skip precalc?
This will depend on the school and what class you would like to skip. If the math class has a pre-calc requirement, it may not be possible for you to skip pre-calc. The best way for you to skip pre-calc is to speak to your math teachers and counselors at your school. In the end, you may simply need to show proficiency via test or completion of similar coursework.
