**How prepared are you for your Calculus course?** How much information from your previous math courses do you recall? Do you recall how to compute the perimeter and area? Can you graph equations of lines? Do you remember the rules for exponents? Have you heard of sine and cosine? What is a function? All of these skills and more are expounded upon here. Just follow these helpful steps and you will be well on your way to becoming successful in Calculus.

**Step 1:** **Check and polish the foundational skills in EdReady.**

To get started, go to EdReady, choose *Calculus Prep*:

Take the diagnostic, and follow the custom study plan (see EdReady for Calculus Prep instructions). EdReady contains practice problems, videos, lessons, and mini-exams - almost everything you need in one package. Work with a Math Center instructor to fill in the gaps.

**Step 2: Review key Pre-Calculus topics covered in the videos below.**

**Perimeter and Area**

**Graphs and Equations of Functions**

**Writing Equations of Lines**

- The Rate of Change and Slope
- Graphing Equations in Slope-intercept Form
- Point-Slope form and Standard form of Linear Equation:
- Writing the Equation of a Line
- Linear Equations
- Slope-Intercept Form

**Average Rates of Change**

- The Rate of Change and Slope (same as above)

**Exponentials and Graphs**

**Rules of Exponents**

- Exponential Notation
- Simplify by using the Product, Quotient and Power Rules
- Products and Quotients raised to Powers
- Rational Exponents
- Multiplying and Dividing Radical Expressions

**Logarithms and Graphs**

**Summation Notation**

**Angles and Radians**

**Sine and Cosine**

- Identifying the Six Trigonometric Functions
- Unit Circle Trigonometry
- Graphing Sine and Cosine Functions

**Trigonometric Functions and Graphs**

- Graphing Sine and Cosine Functions (same as above)
- Amplitude and Period

**Step 3: Get help with the Math Center!**
