Course topics may also include normal distribution and measures of variability.
This course includes the study of trigonometry, advanced algebra, theory of equations and analytic geometry. The first semester's emphasis is on trigonometry and the emphasis the second semester is on elementary mathematical analysis. Students who complete the course should be prepared for calculus and other first year college mathematics courses.
