In MATH 1316, one learns how to work with trigonometric
functions , identities, equations, and
applications of all of these. Students who wish to take scientific calculus must
learn the material
in MATH 1316 and MATH 2412, Precalculus, to prepare for MATH 2413, Calculus I.
the trigonometry course, it is necessary that you have completed the
prerequisite for the course
(one semester of high school trigonometry or precalculus or College Algebra or
or recent completion of ACC's MATD 0390, Intermediate Algebra, with a B or
better) and that
you recall most of the geometry and how to use most of the algebraic techniques
already learned. There is little or no review of algebra in the trigonometry
The following problems provide a quick review of this algebra for students who
the prerequisite. The answers are listed at the end. If you find any of these
that you do not know
how to do correctly, you need to do one of two things before you enroll in MATH
1. Get an algebra book (at the Intermediate Algebra or College Algebra level)
these topics until you can do all of these problems. If you do not have a book,
check one out of the LRS, buy a non-current textbook at a used book store, buy
algebra book in the Schaum's Outline Series, or buy a current textbook.
2. If you are unable (or don't have time) to learn these topics by reviewing on
your own, you
need to take an algebra course to refresh your algebra skills. All of the
topics are covered in ACC's MATD 0390 (Intermediate Algebra) course and if you
that course and learn the material well, you will be prepared for MATH 1316.
who have had two years of high school algebra or the equivalent and are able to
about 2/3 of these right may choose to take MATH 1314 (College Algebra) to
MATH 1316. MATH 1314 is a more difficult course than MATD 0390, but college
is awarded for it.
1. A ladder is leaning up against the side of a house. If the bottom of the
ladder is 7 feet from the
house and the ladder is 14 feet long, how far up the side of the house is the
top of the ladder?
2. Recall the geometrical theorem that says that the ratios of the corresponding
sides in similar
triangles are equal. Suppose that you want to measure the height of a building.
To do this, you
measure the building's shadow and find that it is 50 feet long. You also measure
the shadow of a
4-foot stake and find its shadow to be 3.5 feet long. How tall is the building?
3. Find the distance between the two points: (-1, 5) and (2, 12).
