Course Content
The specific goals of the
trigonometry course are to stress an algebraic, graphic, and numeric
approach to:
- the
concept of function, especially trigonometric functions arising
from the study of circular motion
- right
angle trigonometry and trigonometric functions of general angles
- the
application of trigonometric functions in modeling problems
- trigonometric
equations, inequalities, and identities
- graphing
trigonometric functions
- applying
trigonometric functions to polar coordinates, complex numbers,
and vectors
To
accomplish these goals the class incorporates interactive
laboratories using technology. Student activities that
emphasize problem solving, writing, and student cooperation are
integral parts of the class.
Instructional Materials
The current cost of the text and
laboratory manual/CD is approximately $135. Some schools have made
arrangements to absorb either all of part of this cost, please check
with your local high school for details.
University Requirements for
Admittance
Students must be admitted to a higher
education institution and must meet additional departmental
requirements before they are permitted to register. There will be a
designated Placement Test Day scheduled for each WvEB school.
WVU-Morgantown Requirements
A high school student wishing to register for
a WvEB mathematics course must have Senior Status (others could be admitted
with special consideration) with an overall GPA of 3.0. On the
Admittance Day, a student must submit:
1. A completed WVU High School application
form.
2. A high school transcript that includes an overall GPA,
ACT/SAT
Math Scores, and required mathematics courses.
Departmental Requirements
for Admittance
In addition to the University
requirements, the student must have:
1. An earned ”C“ or better in the
following courses:
Algebra
1, Algebra 2, and Geometry.
2. An earned "C" or better in the WvEB Algebra course.
3. A satisfactory score on the WVU Algebra placement test
(Special
consideration will be given to those high school
students
who do not pass the placement test but have
the appropriate
ACT/SAT score, but all interested
students
must first take the placement test).
Registration
