MAT140 Precalculus: Week Eight

MAT140: Week Eight: Solve some classes of rational and radical equations.

1. Video: Introduction to Trigonometry (located at https://www.coursera.org/learn/trigonometry/lecture/OAep1/introduction-to-trigonometry)
2. Reading: Quiz Notation
3. Reading: Trigonometry Cheat Sheet
4. Reading: Angles and their Measure: Reading and Exercises
5. Video: Converting Between Degrees-Minutes-Seconds and Degrees
6. Video: Converting Between Degrees and Radians
7. Video: Coterminal Angles
8. Video: Reference Angles
9. Discussion: Choose one of the above topics and briefly explain why you found that topic particularly interesting. One comment and one reply to another student is required.
10. Assignment: Angles and their Measure: Upload your assignment as a pdf file into the media section of your WordPress account. Submit the link to the pdf document in the contact form, NOT in the discussions. The contact form will be sent directly to the professor to keep your homework private. Homework should be submitted by 11:59, October 28th. (I have not included the homework assignment here but one would be added by the professor or other departmental personnel. I am not qualified to devise a precalculus assignment; I have not taken precalculus in over thirty years.)
11. Quiz: Submit your quiz answers in the contact form, NOT in the discussions. The contact form will be sent directly to the professor and no one will be able to copy your work. The quiz should be submitted by 11:59, October 28th. (Like the assignment, the quiz is purposefully not included here but would include a series of questions followed by the contact form below.)

The contact form can also be used to submit questions to the professor. The pags will be updated if the same question is asked by multiple people.

(notes: All class details except for the discussion topic and quiz were copied directly from https://www.coursera.org/learn/pre-calculus. The first video is the only topic with an active link. In a live course, all videos, readings, assignments, and quizzes would be either embedded into the page or the titles would be active links to the material. In a live learning environment, this page would be filled in with details from the professor and/or the relevant department instead of the Coursera information.)
