    Introduction to Pre-Calculus and Statistics is designed to prepare students for lower-level college mathematics.  This course further develops an understanding of Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and introduces some Statistical topics.  A graphing calculator and Geometer Sketchpad will be used.  Students will take a local mid-term exam in January and a local final exam in June.  Students may opt to earn four (4) units of credit for this course through SUNY Erie at a reduced tuition rate.  Course credits are generally transferable to most colleges and universities throughout the country as long as the student maintains at least a 70% average.
