Course Objectives: The student will be taught how to find the values of
the trig functions from right triangles and circles, understand the graphs of
the trigonometric functions, how to prove trigonometric identities, sum,
difference, double angle and half angle formulas, how to solve triangles using
the law of sines and law of cosines, an understanding of polar coordinates and
their graphs and conic sections and their graphs. Applications
of mathematics to real world problems will be stressed. When feasible, historical notes will be
discussed to emphasize that mathematics is a human endeavor.

tests 100 points each and a comprehensive final exam for 200 points.

Grading
