# MATH 098 - Introduction to Trigonometry

An examination of right triangle trigonometry and applications. Topics include graphs and equations involving sine, cosine, tangent, and related basic concepts. Usually scheduled to meet 5-7 weeks in the first half or second half of a semester. PREREQUISITE(S): A grade of C or better in MATH 050 , appropriate score on mathematics assessment test, or consent of department.

1 semester hour

ONE EQUIVALENT CREDIT HOUR. NOT APPLICABLE TO A DEGREE OR CERTIFICATE. MAY NOT BE USED TO SATISFY DEGREE REQUIREMENTS. NOT INCLUDED IN GPA CALCULATION.

Course Outcomes:
Upon completion of this course, a student will be able to:

• Solve right-triangle trigonometric problems, including word problems.
• Solve simple trigonometric equations.
• Graph y =Asin(x), y=Acos(x), and y=tan(x) without a calculator.
• Evaluate the six trigonometric functions without a calculator for the angles of a right triangle; an angle in standard position defined by a point in the plane; quadrantal angles; and special angles: 30°, 45°, and 60°, as well as those angles whose reference angles are 30, 45, and 60.
• Evaluate the six trigonometric functions for any angle in degrees or radians with a calculator.
• Define degrees and radians. Convert between degrees and radians. Locate angles (in radians) on a unit circle.
• Sketch an angle in standard position. Find and use reference angles. Find and demonstrate understanding of coterminal angles.
• Use basic identities to simplify expressions involving trigonometric functions.
