Math 102X , Section # 57905 - Trigonometry - Alvard Adamyan
Welcome to Math 102 class! My hope is that by the end of this course you have a new appreciation for the subject matter and will continue your education in the subject.
My name is Alvard Adamyan and I will be your instructor for the next 16 weeks in this completely online course.
This course is conducted entirely online, which means you do not have to be on campus to complete any portion of it. You will participate in the course using COC learning management system called CANVAS.
We will cover chapters 1 through 8 in the text. Topics will include right triangles, static and dynamic trigonometry, radians, trigonometric graphs, trigonometric identities, inverse trigonometric functions, trigonometric equations, vectors, complex numbers, polar coordinates, and other topics if time permits along with basic algebraic and geometric ideas, skills, and tolls used in trigonometry and other STEM math courses.
What to Expect in this Course
You will need to have computer access with Chrome as a browser. Computer must have speakers, webcam, microphone, and zoom downloaded on your computer to take this class. Some of the documents in this course will be available to you in PDF form. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader software on your computer, you can download it by going to http://get.adobe.com/reader/.
Types of Assessments
There will be 4 chapter tests that will each cover two chapters and a cumulative final exam on December 9 (from 5:00m to 7:00 pm). There are no make-up exams. I will drop the score of your lowest exam and replace it with the score you earn on the final (only if it will help your grade). No calculators are allowed on the exams.
Homework will be assigned each lecture, and there will be time at the beginning of each lecture to address any questions from the assigned problems. Homework problems will prepare you for the exams. Periodically, I will select specific assignments to check and grade.
In addition to homework, there will be several quizzes that will be based on previous homework problems. You will be able to use your homework (and nothing else) to assist you with these quizzes. Again, keeping up with the homework as it is assigned is essential in order to be successful in this class.
