MAT2100: Trigonometry

05/01/2023 to 04/30/2024 • Modified 06/08/2023

Course Description

This semester-long course is designed to take the student through a basic review of algebra and applicable geometry and present a detailed study of trigonometric identities. The student will study topics on graphs and functions, the law of sines and law of cosines, vectors, complex numbers, and polar coordinates. The student will explore conic sections, exponential and logarithmic functions, and inverse trigonometric functions. The subject matter will be presented through video lectures and daily practice, and students will view mathematical principles in the light of biblical truth.
