MATH 123  Trigonometry v3 University of Mississippi 

Instructor Information: 

Instructor name: JonMichael Wimberly Welcome to Math 123 Trigonometry iStudy. I am glad you have chosen to enroll in this class. Trigonometry is a very important course in the mathematics sequence as it prepares the student for the rigors of Calculus, my personal favorite class to teach. I have been teaching Trigonometry and Calculus since completing my Master's degree here at Ole Miss in 2011. If you have any questions throughout the course, feel free to contact me via email. I will check my email from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Feel free to contact me at any point; I will respond during those times. Best of luck in the course!

Testing Information: 

A student who wishes to receive credit for an Independent Study course must take all required exams under the supervision of an approved test site official (a proctor). iStudy has a testing facility (DETL, the Distance Education Testing Center at UM) to proctor tests for students in the Oxford area. Students near Tupelo, Southaven, Grenada or Booneville can use our regional campus testing centers. Other students are allowed to take tests from any approved 2 or 4 year college or university. Testing centers and public libraries can also serve as proctors, but K12 schools are not acceptable. More information is available on the iStudy website. If you are testing in Oxford, you need to submit a test application via Register Blast. The link to Register Blast can be found at the iStudy website. If you are not testing in Oxford, you need to submit an online test application via the iStudy website. NOTE:


Additional Information: 

In an Independent Study course, a student's reading comprehension and written communication skills become even more important than in traditional lecture courses because they are the primary means of receiving knowledge and demonstrating mastery of that knowledge. Accordingly, reading comprehension and written communication skills are necessary for success in this course. CALCULATORS:
