    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is fast paced, but appropriately so; there's a lot of material to cover and time goes quick. The first few weeks are spent on a sort of algebra/pre-calculus review, which is good practice, but being a college course I think we could do without it. Like any math or science based course, there are concepts to learn, and then there are things to memorize; make some flashcards and start early, you'll thank yourself later.

    Course highlights:

    The big takeaways from this course are learning to apply the Trig functions (sine, cosine, tan, etc.) and their inverses for all of the special angles, mostly by memorizing the unit circle. Memorize it. That and manipulation of the numerous trigonometric identities. If you plan on taking Calculus, you WILL need to know these things and know them well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start practicing filling in a unit circle, labeling all the angles and coordinates etc. from day one. This will be in your text book in the first few chapters if you don't yet know what that means. Second, make flashcards of the common trig identities. They should all be collected in the back of the text somewhere. Even if they don't make sense, just memorize them. When you need to use them, you'll be glad you did.
