This semester, Math Services is offering a free, informal seven-week series of workshops to build students' intuition and skill in trigonometry.
These workshops afford students the opportunity to work collaboratively with one another to uncover the definitions, practices, and uses of trigonometry through a progression of small-group activities. On the seventh week, students will have the option of completing a certification test to affirm their successful completion of the workshop's objectives.
The workshops are offered at no cost, and students from any BSU course are invited to attend. The schedule, activities, and practice problems are given below.
All workshops meet on Tuesday from 4:00—6:00 p.m. in the Academic Achievement Center Classroom on the dates listed below.
