MATH 1230 - Trigonometry

3 credit hour(s)
Prerequisite: MATH 1220  or MATH 1240  or appropriate placement score .
A study of plane trigonometry including the definitions of the fundamental trig functions using right angle triangle and unit circle approaches. Trig  functions of any real number will be evaluated and the functions graphed along with their transformations.  Trigonometric identities will be developed and demonstrated including multiple angle identities and identities developed from them. Inverse Trigonometric functions will be developed and used to solve trigonometric equations.  Trigonometric applications will be solved using right angle trigonometry and the laws of sines and cosines.  Trigonometric methods will be applied to complex numbers and the use of 2D vectors and vector dot products.
