In this 150+ lesson series, you'll go through prerequisites for Trigonometry and then the ins and outs of Trig. The first lessons will walk you through all of the algebra-related prerequisites that you should be familiar with in advance of a trigonometry class. This will include graphing basics, relationships between two and three points, circles, equation graphing, function basics, working with and doing operations on functions, notions of domain and range, slope, lines, linear equations, graphing shits and stretches, symmetry, reflections, quadratic functions, composite functions, rational functions, and function inverses.

Armed with an understanding of these prerequisites, we'll dig into a study of Trigonometric functions. We'll start with angles, angle measure, radians, right angle trig, trig functions, and inverse trig functions. We'll also look at graphing basic trig functions.

Next, we'll move on to look at trigonometric identities, including sum and difference identities, double-angle identities, etc. We'll learn about basic trig identities and simiplifying trigonometric expressions. Then, we'll take these learnings to get a feel for how to prove different trig identities and solve different trigonometric equations.

After our study of identities, we'll move on to a section on trig applications. In this portion, we'll learn about the Law of Sines, the Law of Cosines, vector basics, etc.

Then, we'll move on to a few lessons on complex numbers and polar coordinates before wrapping up with a series of lessons on conic sections that cover parabolas, hyperbolas, ellipses, etc.

Faulty advertising! I don't like thinking I am getting an example of something that I want to understand and have the problem be something simple like d=rt.

Extremely helpful--the textbook I'm using leaves some points unexplained, but Professor Burger explains everything clearly and concisely.

This is a great lesson on Difference Quotient Functions however the answer to the second example should be -2x-h

This is very helpful, but would be even better if some of the problems had had an a- coefficient, such as f(x)=3x^2-9x=14
