A study of the periodic nature of circular functions is combined with the trigonometry of the right triangle. A key component of the course is the graphing of circular functions using amplitude, period, phase shift and vertical displacement. Graphs are also constructed to model real world phenomena. Solving for unknown parts as well as using the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines are discussed in terms of oblique and right triangles. Students will also learn how to solve trigonometric equations and how to prove basic trigonometric identities.
