## **Which Pre-Calculus option is best for your student?**

What math class should your student take after Algebra 2? Most universities recommend that students take at least three and preferably four years of math. After Algebra 2, students have completed three years, so that fourth year could be considered optional. But HSML recommends that a student continue with at least one more math class.

If your student is going to pursue a course in business or another degree that requires Calculus 1 for non-majors (aka Business Calculus) then the HSML Pre-Calculus for non-STEM majors is the class for them.

If your student is going to pursue a STEM career (science/technology/engineering/math) then the HSML Pre-Calculus with Trigonometry course (honors or non-honors) is the best option.

HSML Pre-Calculus courses use university level textbooks and are an excellent way to encounter the material while still in a high school style setting. After completion of either course, a student could choose to re-take the same class in a university setting so as to "get their feet wet" in that setting without encountering new and difficult coursework right away. If they chose one of our Pre-Calculus STEM classes, they would have the option to choose a Calculus course, confident in the fact that they have been adequately prepared.
