Trigonometry Review Problems
The following problems are provided as examples of some of the trigonometry concepts and
topics that are tested on the mathematics placement test used at UNCW. They are not intended
to be a complete summary of all topics covered on the test or representative of prerequisite
material for any UNCW mathematics course. See our website (www.uncw.edu/math) for more
information about the placement test.
