MATH 026

Plane Trigonometry

Trigonometry is a field of mathematics in which the geometric properties of the angles and edges of triangles are used to measure lengths. Real-world problems involving trigonometry are common in engineering, physics, construction and design. This course is well suited for students who need sufficient mastery of trigonometry for use in fieldwork as well as those continuing on to engineering, kinesiology, surveying and physical sciences. Intermediate algebra skills are assumed. MATH 026 provides the trigonometry skills and concepts essential to success in calculus courses. Topics include right-triangle relationships, unit circle, sine, cosine, and tangent functions and their applications, inverse trigonometric functions, identities, and trigonometric form of complex numbers.
