Trigonometry Trigonometry begins in the right triangle, but it doesn’t have to be restricted to triangles. The trigonometric functions carry the ideas of triangle trigonometry into a broader world of realvalued functions and wave forms.

3
Radian Measure To talk about trigonometric functions, it is helpful to move to a different system of angle measure, called radian measure. A radian is the measure of a central angle whose intercepted arc is equal in length to the radius of the circle.
4
Radian Measure There are 2 radians in a full rotation  once around the circle There are 360° in a full rotation To convert from degrees to radians or radians to degrees, use the proportion
5
Sample Problems Find the radian measure equivalent of 210°
Find the degree measure equivalent of radians.
6
The Unit Circle Imagine a circle on the coordinate plane, with its center at the origin, and a radius of 1. Choose a point on the circle somewhere in quadrant I.
7
The Unit Circle Connect the origin to the point, and from that point drop a perpendicular to the xaxis. This creates a right triangle with hypotenuse of 1.
8
The Unit Circle is the angle of rotation The length of its legs are the x and ycoordinates of the chosen point. Applying the definitions of the trigonometric ratios to this triangle gives 1 y x
9
The Unit Circle The coordinates of the chosen point are the cosine and sine of the angle . This provides a way to define functions sin() and cos() for all real numbers . The other trigonometric functions can be defined from these.

Trigonometric Functions
is the angle of rotation 1 y x
11
Around the Circle As that point moves around the unit circle into quadrants II, III, and IV, the new definitions of the trigonometric functions still hold.
12
Reference Angles The angles whose terminal sides fall in quadrants II, III, and IV will have values of sine, cosine and other trig functions which are identical (except for sign) to the values of angles in quadrant I. The acute angle which produces the same values is called the reference angle.
13
Reference Angles The reference angle is the angle between the terminal side and the nearest arm of the xaxis. The reference angle is the angle, with vertex at the origin, in the right triangle created by dropping a perpendicular from the point on the unit circle to the xaxis.
14
Quadrant II Original angle For an angle, , in quadrant II, the reference angle is In quadrant II, sin() is positive cos() is negative tan() is negative Reference angle
15
Quadrant III For an angle, , in quadrant III, the reference angle is
Original angle For an angle, , in quadrant III, the reference angle is  In quadrant III, sin() is negative cos() is negative tan() is positive Reference angle
16
Quadrant IV For an angle, , in quadrant IV, the reference angle is 2 In quadrant IV, sin() is negative cos() is positive tan() is negative Reference angle Original angle

Graphs of the Trig Functions
Sine The most fundamental sine wave, y = sin(x), has the graph shown. It fluctuates from 0 to a high of 1, down to –1, and back to 0, in a space of 2.
23
Graphs of the Trig Functions
The graph of is determined by four numbers, a, b, h, and k. The amplitude, a, tells the height of each peak and the depth of each trough. The frequency, b, tells the number of full wave patterns that are completed in a space of 2. The period of the function is The two remaining numbers, h and k, tell the translation of the wave from the origin.
24
Sample Problem Which of the following equations best describes the graph shown? (A) y = 3sin(2x)  1 (B) y = 2sin(4x) (C) y = 2sin(2x)  1 (D) y = 4sin(2x)  1 (E) y = 3sin(4x) 2p 1p 1p 2p 5 4 3 2 1 1 2 3 4 5

26
Graphs of the Trig Functions
Cosine The graph of y = cos(x) resembles the graph of y = sin(x) but is shifted, or translated, units to the left. It fluctuates from 1 to 0, down to –1, back to 0 and up to 1, in a space of 2.
27
Graphs of the Trig Functions
The values of a, b, h, and k change the shape and location of the wave as for the sine. Amplitude a Height of each peak Frequency b Number of full wave patterns Period 2/b Space required to complete wave Translation h, k Horizontal and vertical shift

Graphs of the Trig Functions
Tangent The tangent function has a discontinuous graph, repeating in a period of . Cotangent Like the tangent, cotangent is discontinuous. Discontinuities of the cotangent are units left of those for tangent.
31
Graphs of the Trig Functions
Secant and Cosecant The secant and cosecant functions are the reciprocals of the cosine and sine functions respectively. Imagine each graph is balancing on the peaks and troughs of its reciprocal function.
32
Trigonometric Identities
An identity is an equation which is true for all values of the variable. There are many trig identities that are useful in changing the appearance of an expression. The most important ones should be committed to memory.

Law of Sines and Cosines
All these relationships are based on the assumption that the triangle is a right triangle. It is possible, however, to use trigonometry to solve for unknown sides or angles in nonright triangles.
42
Law of Sines In geometry, you learned that the largest angle of a triangle was opposite the longest side, and the smallest angle opposite the shortest side. The Law of Sines says that the ratio of a side to the sine of the opposite angle is constant throughout the triangle.
43
Law of Sines In ABC, mA = 38, mB = 42, and BC = 12 cm. Find the length of side AC. Draw a diagram to see the position of the given angles and side. BC is opposite A You must find AC, the side opposite B. A B C
44
Law of Sines .... Find the length of side AC.
Use the Law of Sines with mA = 38, mB = 42, and BC = 12
45
Warning The Law of Sines is useful when you know
the sizes of two sides and one angle or two angles and one side. However, the results can be ambiguous if the given information is two sides and an angle other than the included angle (ssa).
46
Law of Cosines If you apply the Law of Cosines to a right triangle, that extra term becomes zero, leaving just the Pythagorean Theorem. The Law of Cosines is most useful when you know the lengths of all three sides and need to find an angle, or when you two sides and the included angle.
47
