CTY Online Programs Honors Trigonometry is designed to be taken after the completion of Algebra II and is designed for students who are looking to better understand trigonometric functions in preparation for their studies of Calculus or Statistics. This comprehensive course reviews topics in Algebra II, and covers advanced topics in Trigonometry not often seen before Precalculus.
