MATH 150 - Trigonometry

The following are the Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) and Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs) for MATH 150. A Student Learning Outcome is a measurable outcome statement about what a student will think, know, or be able to do as a result of an educational experience. Course Measurable Objectives focus more on course content, and can be considered to be smaller pieces that build up to the SLOs.

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)

  1. Without the use of a calculator, students will be able to graph the six trigonometric functions in a precise manner, stating the period, amplitude, phase shift, and translation as appropriate.
  2. The student will be able to accurately solve trigonometric equations over a given interval, including equations that use multiple angles, identities, and quadratic forms.

Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs)

  1. Evaluate trigonometric functions of angles measured in degrees and radians.
  2. Solve right and oblique triangles.
  3. Apply inverse trigonometric functions.
  4. Graph trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions.
  5. Solve trigonometric equations.
  6. Prove and use trigonometric identities.
  7. Apply DeMoivre’s Theorem to powers and roots of complex numbers.
  8. Apply the principles of trigonometry to problem solving.
  9. Solve problems using vectors and vector operations.
