This is Mr. Navarrette's class website. I teach MECHS Pre-Calculus, OnRamps Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus AB. I will be using google classroom to post announcements and assignments for the class.
The OnRamps Dual Enrollment course is a college-level course offered by the University of Texas. The course is designed to give students an opportunity to earn a college-level Precalculus credit. Each student will receive a college grade (decided by Professor Jeremiah Lucas) and a high school grade (decided by myself). At the end of the year, each student will get an opportunity to declare or decline the college credit. Important dates for the course can be found on the college syllabus and will be communicated throughout the school year.
The AP Calculus AB course is also a college-level course in which students have an opportunity to receive college credit based on their performance on the AP exam at the end of the year. This course is designed to present students with college-level rigor, without the risk of lowering your college GPA. We will be using the Wiley 11 Edition Calculus book as the main resource in the class.
The MECHS program offers various ways for students to earn college credit through dual credit courses. Every early college student must take and pass College Algebra at the college level in order to receive their associate's degree. This class will focus on preparing students for success in a College Algebra class, as well as expose students to all topics that will be prerequisites for a college-level Calculus class. Although early college students are not required to take Calculus during their senior year, I highly encourage taking the action to enroll in the course. By taking Calculus the following year, students will be a step ahead of their peers when entering a university as most majors have degree requirements that include taking Calculus.
