CP Math 3 to Honors Senior Math

If you have just completed CP Math 3 and are planning to take Honors Senior Math, there are some topics that you have not been taught that you will need to learn to be fully prepared for class.  Below you will find a list of these topics, links to resources that can be used to learn these topics, as well as a two-part self assessment to use to test yourself.  It is up to you to be as prepared for the start of class as possible.  In addition, you will need to pass two Cornerstone Assessments from Honors Math 3.  You will need to plan to take these during the week prior to school starting in the fall.  This should be arranged before you leave school this spring with your current math teacher.  Good Luck.
 
List of Cornerstone Assessments to be Taken:

•Triangle Trigonometry Cornerstone

•Trigonometry Applications Cornerstone


This is the list of topics that were not learned in CP Math 3 that are expected knowledge to be prepared for Honors Senior Math:
