MAT 147 - College Trigonometry
3 Lecture Hours
Prerequisites: MAT 108 or Equivalent
A course for students majoring in mathematics, science, or engineering. Topics include trigonometric functions, identities, equations, multiple and half angle formulas, graphs, oblique triangles, inverse trigonometric functions and complex numbers.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Define the six fundamental trigonometric functions from both the unit circle point of view and the right triangle approach.
- Produce graphs of the six trigonometric functions.
- Solve right triangles.
- Prove trigonometric identities.
- Solve trigonometric equations.
- Solve triangle problems using the Law of Sines and Law of Cosines.
- Apply DeMoivre’s Theorem.
- Degree and radian measure
- Trigonometric functions on the unit circle
- Graphing trigonometric functions and their inverses
- Trigonometric equations and identities
- Solving right triangles
- Law of Sines and Law of Cosines
- Area and volume
- Complex Numbers and DeMoivre’s Theorem
Each student is required to have a calculator and a textbook adopted by the Mathematics Department at the specific campus. If available, students may purchase a student solutions manual or make use of the interactive software and video tapes located in the math laboratory.
