MT 126 - College Mathematics II

Credit Hours: 4

A study of trigonometry and analytic geometry. Topics included will be fundamental trigonometry, graphs of trigonometric functions, trigonometric identities and equations, inverse trigonometric functions, oblique triangles, complex numbers, analytic geometry, systems of quadratic equations and inequalities.

Fulfills SUNY General Education – Mathematics.

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

  • define and evaluate values of trigonometric ratios in degrees or radians;
  • solve right triangles and oblique triangles;
  • analyze and solve problems that apply right and oblique triangle trigonometry;
  • sketch and analyze trigonometric functions and their inverses;
  • solve trigonometric equations, quadratic equations and systems of equations;
  • prove identities including basic identities, the addition and subtraction of two angles, the half angle, and the double angle formulas;
  • plot and express complex numbers in rectangular and polar forms;
  • perform the fundamental operation on complex numbers in both rectangular form and polar forms, including DeMoivre’s theorem;
  • investigate the graphs of polynomial and rational functions;
  • analyze and sketch the curves involving the conic sections; and
  • solve inequalities for linear, quadratic, and absolute value functions.
