TRIGONOMETRY WITH EMBEDDED ALGEBRA

MAT* 184

This course introduces trigonometry through a functional approach. Trigonometric
functions are defined through the unit circle and then applied to triangulation
problems. Topics include trigonometric identities, inverse trigonometric functions,
oblique triangle trigonometry and the graphs of the trigonometric functions,
vectors and the polar coordinate system. Linear, rational, and quadratic functions
will be explored in support of the learning of trigonometry. This course will require
the use of a graphing calculator. Prerequisite: MAT* 085, MAT* 095, MAT* 104, or a
qualifying score on Placement Test.
