The online Trigonometry (semester) course is often considered a 'gateway' course because its content is necessary for further study in upper level mathematics and the sciences. This course introduces students to the fundamental concepts and application of trigonometry. Students will learn about the basic trigonometric functions and how to graph these functions. Topics covered in Trigonometry include: nonlinear functions, how to solve right triangle properties, how to use Law of Sines and Law of Cosines, trigonometric functions, the unit circle, radian measure, trigonometric identities, trigonometric graphs, and advanced algebra.
This course meets the Math course code 400 and above (1 credit of 1 cred (2016-2018, 1 credit of 2 credits 2019) graduation requirement.
