advanced mathematics. The course treats both circular and 
trigonometric functions. Topics covered include fundamental 
concepts, identities, graphs of the functions, the inverse functions 
and their graphs, application to right and oblique triangles, 
trigonometric equations, vectors, and complex numbers. Meets A.A. 
general education 
Category III.
Required Materials: Books:
  • Lial, Hornsby, Schneider, and Daniels. Trigonometry, 10th ed., Pearson, 2012. ISBN: 0321671775

Special Requirements: Distance Learning/Hybrid Course statement: There is a $24.99 Lab Fee for Distance Learning courses and NO Lab Fee for Hybrid courses. Distance Learning and Hybrid Sections require a MyMathLab access code. Use of MyMathLab in face-to-face sections is at the discretion of the instructor. Contact your instructor to determine if MyMathLab is required. For sections NOT requiring MyMathLab the textbook listed is required.
Program Learning Outcomes:
Global Learning Outcomes 
I. Critical Thinking:
The student evaluates the validity of ideas, developing informed 
opinions or defensible conclusions.

III. Scientific and Mathematical Literacy:
The student properly identifies and applies scientific or 
mathematical principles and methods.

IV. Information Literacy:
The student effectively locates, evaluates and applies information 
from a variety of sources. 
Course Learning Outcomes:
At the end of the course the student will be able to:
  1. Use the trigonometric functions, similar triangle proportions, and the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems involving right triangles.
  2. Use coterminal and reference angles to evaluate functions of angles.
  3. Solve circular problems involving linear velocity, angular velocity, and areas of circular sectors.
  4. Sketch graphs of trigonometric functions and inverse trigonometric functions.
  5. Verify trigonometric identities.
  6. Solve trigonometric equations.
  7. Solve oblique triangles, using the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines.
  8. Use vectors to solve problems involving magnitude and direction.
  9. Convert complex numbers from algebraic form to trigonometric form, and vice-versa.
  10. Perform mathematical operations on complex numbers in trigonometric form, such as: multiplication, division, raising to powers, and extracting roots.
Methods of Evaluation:

Flexibility: It is the intention of the instructor to accomplish the objectives specified in the course syllabus. However, circumstances may arise which prohibit the fulfilling of this endeavor. Therefore, this syllabus is subject to change. When possible, students will be notified of any change in advance of its occurrence.

Student Email Accounts: Pensacola State College provides an institutional email account to all credit students. Pirate Mail is the official method of communication, and students must use Pirate Mail when communicating with the College. In cases where companion software is used for a particular class, emails may be exchanged between instructor and student using the companion software.
