Are the two Trig and Polar Functions units complete yet?

Dear Darla Matsakis, Thank you for your comment. The Trigonometric Functions Unit has had 2 of the 3 presentations reviewed and posted today (see Chapters 1 and 2). The final presentation within this unit will be reviewed and posted by the end of the day Friday, 1/26/24. We will also work on posting the supporting files by 2/1/24. The materials in the Polar Coordinates and Parametric Equations unit, which will consist of two chapters of materials, should be completed and posted by the beginning of March. Please let us know if more information is needed or any questions arise. Kind regards, Audra
