This course is a continuation of Math 112. It includes the study of trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, as well as extensive work with trigonometric identities and equations. Other topics contained in this course are: polar coordinates, complex numbers, DeMoivre’s Theorems, vectors, and conic sections.
- The course presents the essential characteristics and basic processes of inquiry and analysis in the discipline.
- The course encourages the development of critical thinking skills and requires students to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate
- The course considers its subjects in relation to other disciplines and to the human condition.
- The course is not limited to majors in any discipline.
- The course does not focus on professional skills.
