Mary ParkerMATH 1316, TrigonometryHandouts | Material for Instructors Trigonometry is one of the nicest freshman math courses to teach and to take. It's about the geometry of right triangles and extensions of these ideas. It's really amazing to see all the places that the extensions of those ideas lead. We'll see some interesting applications of them as we focus on learning the particular parts of trigonometry needed for calculus. In order to succeed in trigonometry, students must begin with solid algebra skills. We have a Prerequisite Review Sheet available. Please look over this and get whatever help you need to learn to do these before the course starts. Then you can concentrate on learning trigonometry in the course rather than reviewing algebra.
