    College Algebra/College Trigonometry

    This is a sequence of two courses, one each semester, over the school year. These courses are offered in collaboration with Lake Superior State University and are taken for college credit. College Algebra is a mathematical modeling approach to functions which requires the students to choose a function to fit a certain real-world situation and set up the function to model the situation. College Trigonometry is a more involved study of trigonometric functions, their properties, and trigonometric identities. This sequence is used as a pre-calculus sequence at LSSU. (These courses do not count towards student's GPA)
