Trigonometry explores trigonometric functions and practical applications of trigonometry, such as solving real-life problems through engineering, physics, construction, and design. Students investigate graphs, linear functions, quadratic functions, trigonometric functions, analytical trigonometry, analytical geometry, vectors, and advanced functions. Students develop critical-thinking skills and learn problem-solving techniques to help them succeed in understanding and applying trigonometric principles. By the end of this course, students gain knowledge of and appreciation for trigonometry and problem solving, which will prepare them for future mathematics courses.
