Why is Precalculus Important?

Even if your high school does not require students to take more than two years of math, colleges want to see more. Elite colleges especially value taking precalculus and calculus. When you take precalculus, you will be introduced to the concepts that your higher-level math courses will require. Since many students take calculus, you will want to do so as well to help you compete in the admissions committee discussions.

How well you understand precalculus may help to improve your scores on the ACT and the SAT. The new SAT contains a few math questions involving basic precalculus concepts. The type of mathematical thinking and conceptual reasoning it involves will also help you in your other subtests because of the critical and analytical thinking that is involved. Scoring well in rigorous math courses may also improve your chances of succeeding in the future. According to the Hoover Institution at Stanford, there is a positive correlation between proficiency in math and gross domestic product, pointing to the economic importance of math mastery.

At exclusive schools, admissions counselors look to see if students have taken difficult courses through all four years of their high school, including calculus. Taking precalculus by your junior year can help you to understand the concepts underpinning calculus. It is also important for you to score well in your precalculus class to maintain a high GPA. Because of the competitiveness of college admissions, many high schools have expanded their curricula to include higher-level math courses such as precalculus and calculus. It is difficult for high schools to find qualified calculus teachers at the secondary level, meaning that the quality of these courses may vary substantially from school to school. When you have the help of a highly skilled precalculus tutor at Going Ivy, you may be likelier to master the concepts that you need in high school and beyond.
