Prerequisites: Right triangle geometry (Pythagorean theorem), linear equations, fractions.
In this class, we will learn the basics of trigonometry. Right angle definitions of the six trigonometric functions: sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, cosecant, and secant; How to solve for a side in a right triangle; How to solve for an angle in a right triangle; sine and cosine of complementary angles; Trigonometric identities
Gently sip your tea with us--pinky out, of course--as we discuss each week's film. We'll politely tear apart the story, direction, acting, cinematography, and special effects as we dab the corners of our mouths with our napkins and consider what to devour next week.
Listen, Learn and Jam! Meeting via Skype, we will listen to different styles of music, develop song ideas and motifs and record them into Garage Band (or other recording platform, depending on what computer you are using). We will also discuss ways to improve our improv skills on our instruments, including music theory and ear training.
