If your teenager is interested in a career in some aspect of science, the study of higher mathematics is vital. Mathematics supplies the language and patterns of reasoning used in the sciences, picturing God’s orderly Creation. This elective course, in which your teen progresses to advanced trigonometric topics as well as analytical geometry, will get him ready! In trigonometry, he will learn to find linear and angular velocity, reduce and graph the six trigonometric functions, solve oblique triangles and trigonometric equations, and verify identities. The emphasis in analytical geometry will be complex numbers, distance and slope, graphing techniques of conic sections and polar equations, and basic regression analysis. Precalculus topics include an introduction to limits, and applications of the first and second derivatives. The detailed explanations and practical applications provided by his A Beka Academy teacher along with ample practice problems make it possible for your teen and his video classmates to master and retain the concepts. As your teen becomes more acquainted with his classmates on the video, he will feel as though he is a part of the class. The teacher will even pause to allow “classmates watching” opportunity to participate.

The prerecorded online video streaming or DVDs give you the flexibility to set your own daily schedule. You have a full 12 months to complete the 170 lessons, which take 40–50 minutes of viewing time each. You also have the option to purchase either the tuition and books or tuition only (for those who may already have some of the materials and wish to purchase individual items separately). Both options include the assessment materials, a video manual to help you stay on track with the video teacher, and record-keeping progress reports to document progress through the school year.

A Beka Academy also offers the option of Independent Study, in which you keep your teen’s academic records, or our Accredited Program. Our Accredited Program does not cost a penny more and provides official report cards, an official transcript, and free standardized testing. With either option, academic assistance is only a phone call or an e-mail away. Prerequisites: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry. Recommended grade 12.
