We’re so glad that you’re working to expand the wide world of OER Trigonometry materials. As you know,trigonometry is a very rewarding subject to teach, as it can be approached so many ways. This variety means that though many OER materials already exist for trigonometry, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution in place. Even if you find a template course you admire, you’re likely to need to do at least some customization to fit your school, your program, and your students.
We invite you to share in the collaboration and wisdom-sharing of the OER community. Slack is a free, easy-to-use tool for communication and collaboration. It offers channels for group conversations on specific topics, including the “Math” channel. You can also send direct messages to individuals or groups. Use it from any computer or mobile device.
Lumen offers several template courses that can serve as starting points for your own development. You can mix, match, and adapt anything from the courses below quite easily.

Lumen is hosting Collaboration meetings to help bring faculty together as they work on developing their courses. The next meeting for College Math will be on Friday October 21 at 10:00am PT/1:00pm ET. Meetings are hosted in Uber Conference. The meeting can be found at https://www.uberconference.com/alyson8 or you can call in at 1-503-715-2599. You will benefit more from the collaboration if you join from your computer, but it is not required. No PIN is needed to join the call.
