Mathematics » Trigonometry


This college preparatory course is intended for students who have completed Algebra 2 (322) and a prerequisite for students who are planning on enrolling in Pre-Calculus (332). It is intended for students who are interested in enrolling in a STEM related field after high school. Students will build upon the concepts learned in Geometry regarding right triangle trigonometry through the lens of functions which were studied throughout Algebra 2. Students will analyze trigonometric functions both algebraically and graphically and apply them to real world situations. Students will continue to build on their logical reasoning as through verification of trigonometric identities using basic trigonometric identities. Topics in this course include: Pythagorean relationships, functions and their graphs, trigonometric functions, right triangle trigonometry, angles of rotation and radian measure, graphs of trigonometric functions, trigonometric formulas and identities, and polar coordinates.
