MRS21 Trigonometry 1 Prerequisites: Recommended Geometry 2.
Corequisites: Taken together with Trigonometry 2 (MRS21) as a double-period class.
Number of Semesters: 1 Semester
Description: Trigonometry 1 is designed to continue developing the algebraic techniques that are required of those students that continue their study of mathematics. The real number system is extended to include imaginary and complex numbers. The families of functions include polynomial, absolute value, radical, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Problems resulting in systems of equations and situations involving direct and inverse variations are solved graphically and algebraically. Right-triangle trigonometry is expanded to include the investigation of circular functions and problem situations requiring the use of trigonometric equations and identities. Arithmetic and geometric sequences are expressed in multiple forms, and arithmetic and geometric series are evaluated. Data analysis is extended to include measures of dispersion and the analysis of regression that model functions. Binomial experiments provide the basis for the study of probability theory and the normal probability distribution is analyzed and used as an approximation for these binomial experiments.
