__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 2 Review: (link)

__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.
