MATH111 College Trigonometry (3 semester hours)

This is a course in college trigonometry. It builds on earlier college algebra courses such as MATH110, extends the students' studies to trigonometry, and introduces topics in analytical geometry. Practical applications are provided throughout the course. The course begins by reviewing methods of graphing and solving linear and quadratic functions as well as techniques for solving polynomials. It then concentrates on various trigonometric functions, identities and equations as well as the application of trigonometry to real-life situations. The final part of the course includes exponential and logarithmic functions as well as selected topics in analytic geometry including polar coordinates and the conic sections. While there are no prerequisites for MATH111, it is very highly recommended that the student has completed MATH110 College Algebra or an equivalent college-level course.
