Why Pre-calculus is Important

While not required by all high schools, pre-calculus is important because it helps to introduce students to the concepts they will need for their higher-level calculus and other math courses in college. Since many college-bound high school students take calculus during their senior year, taking pre-calculus as a junior is important to help you to prepare for the material that you will encounter and could place you as eligible for AP calculus, or reaching to the more rigorous Calculus BC.

Your understanding of and grades in your pre-calculus course may also have a positive impact on your standardized test scores. The newly redesigned SAT has some math questions that require a basic knowledge of pre-calculus concepts. Beyond scoring better on your ACT or SAT, taking pre-calculus and gaining a strong understanding of it as well as your other rigorous math courses may have a positive impact on your future. According to an expert at Stanford’s Hoover Institution, students who score better in their math classes and who are proficient in their math subjects earn higher incomes as adults in their future careers.

College admissions officers at selective schools want to see that students have taken rigorous courses during all four years of high school, and many want to see that applicants have taken calculus. Pre-calculus helps you understand the difficult concepts that you will explore more deeply during calculus. If you take it, it is similarly important that you obtain a high score in the class so that you are better prepared. One problem that some students encounter in their high school pre-calculus and calculus courses is that the quality of these courses varies significantly from high school to high school. Getting help from a highly qualified and knowledgeable pre-calculus tutor can help you master the concepts while laying the foundation for you to score well in a rigorous course like calculus.

Why Going Ivy is Better Than the Competitors

Going Ivy prides itself on its industry-leading, holistic and results-driven approach. Our tutors and admissions counselors recognize that every student is unique and has his or her own individual learning style, strengths, needs and baseline foundations in academics. Our pre-calculus and calculus tutors first get to know their students, interviewing them to learn more about their individual attributes, areas of frustration, strengths and styles of learning. They then use this information to create lesson plans that are tailored to each student. Some of our competitors use one-size-fits-all methods of instruction or rely on the course syllabus, but our tutors understand that an individualized approach is superior and offers better results.

Our tutors are excellent teachers and know how to teach the material to you in such a way that you will understand the underlying concepts and be able to apply your knowledge in all of your math courses. The concepts that you learn while you are studying pre-calculus will serve you well as you move forward and take AP calculus. Our tutors take the long view and understand that your grade in pre-calculus does not exist in a vacuum but is one of many steps that you will take along your journey toward gaining admission into college.
