More About The Course

Sometimes you need a little preparation before adding another course onto your resume. This pre-calculus course is required for students who need extra preparation before taking the more advanced pre-calculus course, Pre-Calculus 1B. Students taking Pre-Calculus 1A will receive workload credit only, meaning that the credit cannot be applied to your degree.
