Student Learning Outcomes

1. Students demonstrate knowledge of the six trigonometric functions, methods of solving triangles, trigonometric identities, and trigonometric equations.
2. Students model problems using their knowledge of these functions, and construct the quantitative solutions to many geometric problems.
3. Students apply their knowledge of trigonometric functions and identities to construct quantitative solutions in geography, physical sciences, engineering, and other disciplines.
4. Students communicate their knowledge of functions, equations, and inequalities, both orally (i.e. class discussions) and in writing (i.e. written assessments).
