i'm almost certain my own hs precalc course introduced actual basic calc topics within its last two months or so, but just to be certain, i consulted the goog, and indeed, it does seem p. common for precalc courses to include basic derivatives at the very least

so yeah, i'd say that zelda is something like intro to rpgs

i just looked it up for my specific school district, and then compared it to the ny curriculum in general, and yeah i guess it might be regional lol

my district's definition of precalc:

QuoteThe Pre-Calculus course is a preparation for the study of AP Calculus given during senior year.
Topics include: graphing and finding roots of polynomials, number theory, functions and
relations, limits of functions, derivatives and differential calculus.

so, at least in ny, precalculus is a subtopic of calculus

well thankfully that question isn't nearly as subjective and wasn't too hard to clear up, so the answer is: depends on the state/institution lol

i'd love to respond to this with an emphatic "No. ", but if chess is a sport, i don't see how """e-"""sports"""""" couldn't also be sports, much to my annoyance

i would say an rpg has systems to tweak your character in order to change effectiveness against enemies, who would typically have mathematically determined amounts of health. BotW has all this, most Zelda games don't.
