Course Description:

A study of the functions used in calculus, including the exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions. Students must take a math assessment for placement purposes prior to registration. Prerequisite: College Algebra.

Essential Objectives:

5. Define and graph trigonometric functions.
6. Simplify trigonometic expressions using trigonometric identities.
7. Use trigonometric identities and equations in application problems.
8. Recognize arithmetic and geometric sequences and associate corresponding key formulas.
9. Use the Principle of Mathematical Induction.
10. Employ the graphing calculator for the numerical and graphical solution of problems.
11.Demonstrate proficiency in understanding, interpreting, evaluating and applying quantitative data and information.

Attendance Policy:

 Attendance and Due Dates

This is a highly condensed, hybrid course with a significant amount of learning happining on-line. A great deal of material is being presented in a short amount of time. Meeting due dates for work submission is critical to success. Late work grades will be deducted 20% for each day late. Please speak with the instructor ASAP if meeting deadlines is going to be an issue.

 

Syllabus:

Practice Problems

A bank of practice problems and corresponding textbook pages are listed below each topic. Key problems from each topic are assigned each week. These assigned problems are completed as classwork and homework. Homework problems are collected and graded.  Problems not assigned are suggested extra practice to be used as needed.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
