Take your precalculus knowledge to the next level

This course is the second of two precalculus courses from the University of Padova, providing you with the advanced mathematical skills required to complete a first course in calculus.

You’ll get to grips with more challenging precalculus topics: plane and solid geometry; logarithms and exponentials; equalities and inequalities; and trigonometric functions and identities.

By the end of this course you’ll have gained the skills to support further mathematical studies.

What topics will you cover?

  • Plane and solid geometry
  • Logarithms and exponentials
  • Trigonometric functions and identities
  • Equalities and inequalities involving exponential and trigonometric functions
