❖ Pre-Calculus: Introduction to Functions including Polynomials, rational functions, exponential
function, logarithmic function and trigonometric functions, sequence and series, basic concept of
limit in calculus ❖ Students will be expected to learn the general concept of functions and
demonstrate an understanding of materials of Pre-Calculus beyond the manipulation of symbols by
applying the techniques of Pre-Calculus to practical problems.
