Hn Pre-calc - A Condensed Approach

Instructor: Dr. Li

In this short course, I would like to

  • reflect and reconnect what you have learned.
  • sort out some common confusion and misconceptions. 
  • impart my insights on trigonometry: geometry and algebra.

My intenstion is to give you a warm review for the major exam ahead.

Thanks for staying interested in this advanced math course, intended for mindful students to get more well-rounded explanations missing from common schools. The smooth transitions and derivations make each period seemingly shorter. I will engage the students in some select problems to highlight the power of the theorems or formulae. I will also give simple/natural proofs and draw relations with relevant theorems, from both algebraic and geometric aspects. Math is not a warehouse of formulae, but rather the powerhouse of innovative ideas. I will cover the following important topics throughout this academic year:

  1. Combination, permutation, and probability
  2. Power, Polynomial, and Rational Functions
  3. Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
  4. Trigonometric Functions and Identities
  5. Vectors, Parametrics, and Polars
  6. Systems and Matrices
  7. Discrete Math
  8. Analytic Geometry in Three Dimensions
