# MATH 140: Precalculus: Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry (3 credits)

## Course Description

Studies trigonometric functions, analytic geometry, polar coordinates, vectors, and related topics. This course is the second part of the precalculus sequence. (3 hours lecture)

Pre-Requisite(s): Grade of āCā or better in MATH 135 or equivalent, satisfactory math placement test score, or consent of instructor.

## Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to:

- Utilize precise mathematical language and symbols to effectively communicate mathematics in written and/or oral form and in the presentation of evidence.
- Traverse the bridge from theory to practice by applying concepts and properties of trigonometry, vectors, and complex numbers to solve problems.
- Analyze and graph trigonometric functions, inverse trigonometric functions, conics, polar equations, and parametric equations.
- Apply formal rules or algorithms by demonstrating proficiency in performing operations with trigonometric expressions and equations.
- Use appropriate symbolic techniques to analyze and solve application problems requiring the use of trigonometry and analytical geometry and in the critical evaluation of evidence.
- Understand the concept of proof as a chain of inferences by demonstrating proficiency at proving trigonometric identities and other types of proofs.
