Instructor Information:
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!
