BACKGROUND Technical College Our programs Accreditation Professional Exams Replaced Tech Calc II Advanced Trig Advanced Topics

THE ADVANCED TRIG COURSE 1. Circles and Circular Curves : Arcs and central angles; Chords and segments, Secant and tangent lines,, Perpendicular bisectors; Lengths of tangent lines, chords, curves, external distances and middle ordinates; Circular curve computation 2. Parabolic Curves: Slope of a line (grade or gradient); Distance of a line; Points of vertical curvature, intersection, and tangency; Tangent elevations; Basic form of a parabola; Finding the external distance of a vertical curve 3. Spherical Trigonometry: Spherical triangles, Interior and dihedral angles; Sine formulas for spherical triangles; Cosine formulas for sides of spherical triangles; Cosine formulas for angles of spherical triangles; Applications of spherical triangles
