In my algebra class we are being taught that there are only the 3 basic trig functions (cosine, sine, and tangent). But my friend who is 2 math grade levels ahead of me is saying that there is 6 trig ...
If you take a linear combination of the cosine and sine function, then the result is again a sinusoid, but with a new amplitude and phase shift. $$a \cos(\theta) + b \sin(\theta) = A \cos(\theta + ...
I am going to learn trigonometry next year. I am an advanced student and I like to get a head start on things. So, How do you describe and introduce Trigonometry to the advanced secondary school ...
I've been reading about Wildberger's rational trigonometry and I'm willing to learn it. I'm wondering if it's usage is accepted in undergraduate mathematics courses. It seems there's a redefinition on ...
I'm teaching a geometry course this semester, involving mainly Euclidean geometry and introducing non-Euclidean geometry. In discussing the importance of deductive proof, I'd like to present some ...
Everyone knows the picture that explains instantly the small angle approximation to the sine function (as defined by the parametrisation of the unit circle): "what's the length of that arc?" "See how ...
