Senior High School Specialized Subject: Pre-Calculus

Pre-Calculus is one of the specialized subjects under the Academic career track and the STEM learning strand. Some examples of the things that you will learn from taking this subject include:

  • Analytic Geometry
    • Conic sections
    • Systems of nonlinear equations
  • Series and Mathematical Induction
    • Mathematical induction
    • Binomial theorem
  • Trigonometry
    • circular functions
    • trigonometric identities
    • inverse trigonometric functions
    • polar coordinate system

While studying, you will also be asked to demonstrate what you have learned by participating in class activities that may include the following:

  • Modeling situations and solving problems using conic sections and systems of nonlinear equations
  • Investigating patterns
  • Formulating appropriate mathematical statements
  • Proving statements using mathematical induction and the binomial theorem
  • Solving situational problems involving circular functions
  • Solving situational problems involving trigonometric functions
  • Applying appropriate trigonometric identities in solving situational problems
  • Solving situational problems involving involving the polar coordinate system


These examples only cover the scope of the specialized subjects under the Academic track and STEM learning strand. For the scope of the core and contextualized subjects under the senior high school curriculum, please refer to their respective lists.
