TMCC: Precalculus I and II - Mathematics


This precalculus textmap is intended for college-level Precalculus students and is a comprehensive book that covers more ground than an instructor could likely cover in a typical one- or two-semester course; but instructors should find, almost without fail, that the topics they wish to include in their syllabus are covered in the text.

Meet JJC Math Faculty

Linda Blanco, Professor and Department Chair

Linda Blanco, Professor and Department Chair

Phone: (815) 280-2364
Office: J-1051

About Linda Blanco

Linda Blanco is a full-time professor in the Mathematics Department at JJC and serves as the Department Chair.

Blanco has been teaching mathematics since 1974, first at the high school level, and then at the community college level. Part of her desire is to better bridge the gap between high school teaching and learning and a student's college learning experience.

Blanco has been engaged in professional mathematics organizations like IMACC and ICTM, where she served on the Board of Directors and assisted in committee work. As a community college professor, she is dedicated to service to our JJC community, whether a student ultimately attends at JJC or not.

When not doing professional work, Blanco is active in World Vision efforts to find sponsors for children in under-resourced areas of the world. So far, she has been able to see first-hand the work done in communities in Kenya and Uganda. Since much of Team World Vision fundraising involves endurance activities, she has learned the joy of running (eight Chicago Marathons to date since 2009) and hiking (Grand Canyon 17.5-mile day hike South Rim to South Rim in October 2020).

Blanco also has two adult children who live in great states to visit!

Teaching Style

"My favorite part of my job is working with students! Although I have gained skill in remote teaching, my preference as both instructor and student remains face-to-face discussion and interaction. Even in the remote environment, I prefer to include virtual learning through media like Microsoft Teams which is available here at JJC."


Other Education

Blanco has taken various other courses to remain current in the field. She attends many conferences as well. A few years ago, she took PHIL 104 and MATH 128 at JJC. She enjoys putting herself in uncomfortable positions by taking on challenges.

Blanco has served as a faculty advisor for the Intervarsity Club. She still regards herself as a member.

To ensure a successful transition to the University and graduation in four years, students must work with academic advisors at UNR and TMCC throughout their career.

Students may earn an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science or Associate of Business degree after transferring to the University via reverse transfer   . Talk with an academic advisor at TMCC and/or UNR about this opportunity.

The Silver State Transfer Program may provide the least costly route to a bachelors degree, including personalized academic advising from both institutions, certainty on how your specific courses will transfer and the exchange of transcripts between institutions at no additional cost to you.


Legend

* Course fulfills specific program requirements for the bachelor’s degree.
** The Math/Stat elective may be any MATH/STAT course related to Applied Mathematics numbered 300-499, except for MATH 302, MATH 352/STAT 352.
