Precalculus on Khan Academy: You may think that precalculus is simply the course you take before calculus. You would be right, of course, but that definition doesn’t mean anything unless you have some knowledge of what calculus is. Let’s keep it simple, shall we? Calculus is a conceptual framework which provides systematic techniques for solving problems. These problems are appropriately applicable to analytic geometry and algebra. Therefore….precalculus gives you the background for the mathematical concepts, problems, issues and techniques that appear in calculus, including trigonometry, functions, complex numbers, vectors, matrices, and others. There you have it ladies and gentlemen….an introduction to precalculus!

Amazing, Life Changing Tutor
Before I met Jonathan, I was struggling through most of my STEM classes because I was simply not studying properly. He taught me all kinds of new study habits that would help me to save time, raise my grades, and lower my stress. Jonathan was specifically tutoring me in vector calculus and is an amazing tutor on the subject. You will walk away from a lesson with a game plan knowing exactly what you need to do before your next session with him or before your next exam in order to do well in the course. I highly recommend him as a tutor.

Because it takes two cones to fill one sphere, we can use the volume of a cone formula as a starting point…
