Pre-Calculus 12 is a challenging and engaging course that prepares students for a future in math and science. It’s a prerequisite for almost all science, engineering, and math programs in university. In this course you will build on familiar topics like quadratics and trigonometry and extend your reasoning to more advanced kinds of functions like logarithms and exponential functions. This is a great course if you love problem-solving, finding patterns, and really getting at the meaning of different relationships in math. It is also the course where many of the skills you’ve developed over the past years start to pay off and you learn to apply them to variety of new and interesting situations.
Your Teacher – Keri Piller
Keri was born and raised in the United States, where she met a Canadian (now her husband) who convinced her to move to Canada. Keri is attending UBC to obtain a masters degree in math education. Her love for math and quirky interests has lead her to many crazy endeavors, such as dressing up like famous mathematicians and creating math music videos. When Keri is not at school or BrainBoost, you can still find her doing math because she is obsessed with logic and sudoku puzzles. Aside from this, Keri loves to watch football and play with her dog who just so happens to be named after her favorite football player.
