STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES—Upon successful completion of Math 104, the student should be able to:


• Demonstrate knowledge and the appropriate application of the six trigonometric functions to find arc length, solve triangles, and find linear and angular velocity as related to real-world problems.
• Analyze and sketch the graphs of the six trigonometric function using such principles as asymptotic, periodic, and reciprocal behavior, as well as plotting points generated by a table or graphing calculator.
• Evaluate and solve trigonometric models and equations using inverse functions, Law of Sines, Law of Cosines, graphing calculator, and algebraic techniques. State, verify, and apply trigonometric identities, including but not limited to reciprocal, cofunctional and Pythagorean identities, sum and difference identities, and double-angle and half-angle identities.

STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Student will define and apply the trigonometric functions with respect to general angles in terms of degrees and radians.
  2. Student will evaluate the trigonometric functions of special angles (and their multiples) as well as the quadrantal angles.
  3. Student will solve problems in the application of radian measure, i.e., arc length, area of a sector, linear and angular velocity.
  4. Student will graph all trigonometric functions and the inverse functions for sine, cosine and tangent with respect to periodicity, translation, amplitude and phase shift.
  5. Student will prove trigonometric identities using the basic fundamental identities.
  6. Student will solve trigonometric and inverse trigonometric equations.
  7. Student will solve for unknown parts of the right and oblique triangles using the law of sines and law of cosines.
  8. Student will set up and solve geometric and real-life problems with a calculator.
  9. Student will represent a vector in algebraic form and perform simple operations with vectors.
  10. Student will represent complex numbers in algebraic, geometric and polar form.
