### COURSE OVERVIEW

*Math U See PreCalculus*: Trigonometry, identities, polar equations, logarithms, sequences, limits and other topics to prepare for calculus.

### COURSE NOTES

PREREQUISITE: The student should have completed Math U See ALGEBRA 1, Math U See GEOMETRY and Math U See ALGEBRA 2, or comparable courses.

Five days weekly, 50 to 75 minutes. Earns up to 10.0 high school credits, based on time spent.

Math should be taught four to five days a week, with 15-20 minutes of supervised instruction and 40-50 minutes of independent practice. Be sure to work through every error with your student until you are satisfied that he can reach the correct answer independently. Remember to check your teacher guide for clarification.

A very flexible math regimen that has proven effective for many of our families is to have the student work through 40 minutes, on a timer, of new material, then have him checkmark his own errors using the answer key. The next day he does all of his corrections first, working any problems that he can’t correct on his own with you on a good-sized white/chalk board. Then, picking up where he left off the day before, he works through 40 minutes of new material, then checkmarks his own errors, and so on. As you can see, math can take as little as 45 minutes per day, or as long as an hour or more, depending on your student’s careful attention and effort—the student controls the length of time he spends daily on math. This “timer method” gives the student time to slow down and master the material thoroughly—the homeschool goal—rather than encouraging rushed and shabby work.

Credit Information for Students in Grades 9 - 12: Credits awarded according to hours reported; 37.5 hours = 2.5cr; 75 hours = 5.0cr; max. 2.5cr per quarter; max. 2.5cr per work sample.

Scheduling Suggestions: 5x/wk for 50 to 75 minutes
