Topics covered include the unit circle, the basic trigonometric functions and their graphs, identities of trigonometric functions, solving trigonometric equations, and applications. If time permits, we will cover additional topics such as the laws of sines and cosines, vectors, and trigonometry in the complex plane. A secondary goal of the course is to develop the ability to write clear and logical mathematics. Whenever you solve a problem and show the solution to a random person on the street, they should be able to read it quickly and easily without having to ask, guess, or wonder at the meaning of a particular statement or equation you have written. This is an important skill in career and life, as well as in MAC1114.equation you have written....
