A Glossary for Pre-Calculus

Cal-PASS (NJ1)
In the deconstruction of the California state standards for trigonometry, linear algebra and mathematical analysis for the Cal-PASS (California Partnership for Achieving Student Success) Content Standards Deconstruction projects, it became apparent that terms were used for which no definition was given. The San Diego Central Cal-PASS Math Professional Learning Council felt that many of these terms might be unfamiliar to a precalculus instructor. Hence, a list of key terms and their appropriate definitions were developed, resulting in this document. These descriptions are intended to be explanatory rather than to provide precise mathematical rigor. Some terms, such as logarithms, are not included even though they are essential for calculus preparation because they do not appear in the precalculus standards.
