Pre-Calc and Calculus

This unit will have students take a close look at limits.  Students will gain a better understanding of how limits work, how to algebraically simplify expressions to find the limit, how to look at a graph and know the limit and the ideas about continuous functions.

In this lesson, students will learn how to rationalize the denominator and will be re-introduced to the idea of a conjugate and also imaginary numbers. By the end of the lesson, they should be able to rationalize a denominator even if it contains complex or imaginary numbers.

Grade: 

Students will review how to rationalize the denominator, graph polynomial functions, write exponential growth/decay functions, use rules to re-write log and natural log expressions, use synthetic or long division to divide two polynomials, and how to graph a log function.
