Exam 2 will given in class on Friday, Oct 25th. The exam is closed-notes and closed-book. No technology is allowed. Some hand outs that we have used in class are:

• Graphing trig functions (sine, cosine): blank and filled in
• Graphing other trig functions (secant, cosecant, tangent, cotanget): blank and filled in

Exam 1 will given in class on Friday, Sept 20th. The exam is closed-notes and closed-book. No technology is allowed. You will be given a blank unit circle as reference—an example is linked below. The identities that we have discussed thus far in class are the Pythagorean, reciprocal, even–odd, and quotient identities.

### Tentative schedule and suggested problems:

Note: This schedule is tentative and WILL change as the semester progresses.
