Math 1613.002, Fall 2011 Quiz 1 (Part 1) Name (Print): —————————————————————– Algebra and geometry are necessary for the study of trigonometry. At the beginning, we will use more geometry, but later on algebra will become important too. Briefly answer the following ques- tions about your knowledge of and experience with these subjects, and other relevant background for this course. 1. What classes have you taken that covered algebra or geometry? How long ago did you take these classes? Have you taken a trigonometry class before? If so, how did it go? 2. How confident are you that you can use a calculator accurately and efficiently for numerical work? Do you use a graphing calculator? If so, how confident are you in using the graphing functions? 3. How confident are you in your knowledge of and ability at algebra? The main algebraic topics that we will use in this class are solving equations, simplifying expressions, factoring

Unformatted text preview: expressions, and rewriting expressions involving fractions and radicals. 4. How condent are you in your knowledge of and ability at coordinate geometry? Coordinate geometry involves things like sketching and interpreting the graphs of functions, writing equations for lines, circles, and other geometric objects, and using equations to solve geometric problems such as nding the intersection of two lines. It is sometimes taught in algebra class. 5. How condent are you in your knowledge of and ability at Euclidean geometry? Euclidean geometry is the kind where you study triangles, quadrilaterals, and other geometric gures, parallel lines, transversals (lines that cross a pair of parallel lines), arcs and chords in circles and the angles they subtend at dierent points, and geometric relationships like congruence and similarity. 6. Do you plan to take another mathematics class after Trigonometry? If so, which one?...
