Want to enrich your Precalculus course with difficult problems? Look no further!
I teach a high-octane version of Precalculus to students in our magnet program. Our course, like most Precalculus courses, covers a very wide variety of topics. As often as possible, I like to give them more difficult problems that enrich the material from the book. These documents are a work in progress, but feel free to steal them (just email me a copy if you improve them!):
- Properties of Functions
- Logs and Exponents
- Angular and Linear Velocity
- Trig Equations and Identities
- Permutations and Combinations
- Exclusive and Inclusive Probability
- Random Variables and Expected Value
- Binomial Probability
- Sequences and Series
If you want solutions for any of these, shoot me an email.
These aren’t 100% polished by any means, but I’m sharing them anyway! Long live the spirit of sharing :-).
By the way, many of these problems are collected from other sources but I’m too far removed from those sources to properly attribute the problem-creator. My sincere apologies!
