Trigonometry EVP

Description:

This course is an excellent alternative for students needing an additional credit after Algebra 2 but who are not prepared for the rigor of pre-calculus or eventually moving on to calculus.

This course will cover topics in trigonometry including right triangle trigonometry and its applications, trigonometry of non-acute angles, radian measure and the circular functions, the trigonometric functions, applications of trigonometry and vectors, complex numbers, and exponential and logarithmic functions. Technology and graphing calculators are used extensively in this course to reinforce the concepts covered.

The recommended sequence for students taking non-Honors courses: MATH100, MATH200, MATH300 followed by their choice of MATH310, MATH410, MATH420, MATH440, or MATH510.

Special Notes:

Students need access to a scanner or digital camera (phone is fine) in order to submit work for the teacher to review. Students will also need a TI-84 graphing calculator for this course.

Special Instructions:

FROM THE TEACHER

Do you enjoy the flexibility that online school offers but miss the face-to-face interaction with your teacher and classmates? Then Trigonometry EVP is the place for you. As part of your coursework, MATH410 EVP meets weekly in a live video-conference to learn the concepts of trigonometry, in a way that may be more helpful to the student who misses, needs, or wants the live interaction that an EVP class offers.

What do the orbit of the planets, a ferris wheel, classical music, the electricity operating your computer, and the oscillation of ocean waves all have in common? Trigonometry! Are you considering a career in STEM (science, technology, engineering, or math), but do not quite feel up to the challenge of taking Pre-AP Precalculus yet? Then Trigonometry just might be the course for you. Trigonometry is the branch of mathematics that deals with the relationships between the sides and angles of plane or spherical triangles. A solid foundation in trigonometry is essential for any student seeking to major in architecture or engineering. Join us as we explore the exciting world of trigonometry!

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.

The EVP classes always gave me an opportunity to ask questions I had.
