I. __PURPOSE__

A. This course is a continuation of Math 119. It progresses through a study of the trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, trigonometric equations, trigonometric identities, and applications of trigonometry; sequences; and the conic sections. (A graphing calculator is required for this course.) 4 semester hours. Prerequisite: Math 119 or permission of the instructor.

B. Course Objectives:

Students will be able to:

1. Define and graph the trigonometric functions.

2. Define and graph the inverse trigonometric functions.

3. Prove trigonometric identities.

4. Solve trigonometric equations.

5. Solve both right and oblique triangles.

6. Identify and understand both arithmetic and geometric sequences.

7. Identify and describe the conic sections by their equations.

8. Apply trigonometry to solving many real life problems.

9. Learn other manipulations required for the study of calculus.

C. The following General Education Goals are covered in the course:

1. Scientific and Quantitative Reasoning.

2. Critical Analysis and Reasoning .

II . __Course policies__

A. Attendance is required

B. Class Participation:

Class participation will generally consist of a Question-Answer period at the beginning of each class in order to clear up any difficulties you are having. The remaining time will be used for the introduction of new material.

C. Grading:

__GRADES__ are computed on your total point value. This
includes exams and your final grade. Usually, the point value grade corresponds
to the standard percent scale. The standard percent scale is as follows:

90-100 A; 80-89 B; 70-79 C; 60-69 D.

If conditions warrant, this scale will be adjusted, but don’t expect it.

"X" grades will be given only under very strenuous conditions; you must be able to prove you made an outstanding effort despite failing.

D. Extra Credit: Not applicable

E. Tutoring, extra help sessions, or special needs:

__TUTORING__ is available. Use the math study
lab H-66 in Cumberland, in Everett contact Tina Iames 814 652 9528 3 ext 6224.

See me (or skype with me!) during office hours if you are having difficulties.

If you have a disability impairing your access to this course
or your ability to pursue the coursework as it is presented, please see personnel
in the

F. Acceptable style/format of assignments:

__ASSIGNMENTS__ are for your benefit. Do as many exercises
as are necessary to achieve your goal for this course. If conditions warrant,
the assignments will be collected. This is your responsibility. Assignments
should be neat and legible. It is very important to learn how to read mathematics;
therefore, you should read and study all discussions and examples in your text
related to class material. Most successful math students study and do assignments
a minimum of two hours for every class hour.

G. Assignment Deadlines:

Assignments are to be completed by the beginning of the next class.

H. Plagiarism and cheating:

__CHEATING__ will not be tolerated. The student handbook
describes the policy in regard to this matter. Familiarize yourself with the
policy.

I. Exams

__QUIZZES__ (unannounced or "pop") may be given
occasionally. These will be valued at no more than 10 points each. No make-up
quizzes allowed.

__EXAMS__ are announced and will be given at the completion
of each unit. Each exam will have a point value. A final exam will be given
at the end of the semester.

__MAKE-UP EXAMS__ You must have an acceptable reason for
the absence, you must take the make-up when scheduled, and you must let the
instructor know of the problem BEFORE the exam is scheduled. All make-up exams
will be scheduled during the last week of the semester. This is not a good time
to take an exam, so avoid it if you can.

III. __COURSE REQUIREMENTS__

A. Outline of course contents (See next page)

B. List any assignment(s) requiring the use of AC's library or any other libraries:

Not applicable

C. Required student reading assignments including author and title of book and page numbers:

Not applicable

D. Recommended readings:

Not applicable

E. Supplemental learning resources (AV materials, handouts, individual instructional materials, field trips, resource people, etc.) Supplemental learning resources will be used during the semester at appropriate times.
