This class is intended for students who are preparing to take calculus. Trigonometry will be defined using the unit circle approach, with emphasis on the geometry of the circle. Classical right triangle trigonometry will be studied, along with trigonometric identities and equations, the laws of sines and cosines, and graphs and properties of the trigonometric functions and their inverses. Additional topics from algebra will include logarithmic and exponential functions. A graphical approach will be utilized throughout, with an emphasis on solving application problems. Students will develop skills in basic trigonometry and its applications, with an emphasis on modeling with functions and other algebraic skills necessary for the study of calculus. Not open to students who have credit for MAT-180 or MAT-191.
