Cosine Sine Copyright Additional Resources Tangent Trigonometry Functions Introduction Go Back Continue The Trigonometry of Right Triangles This tutorial will teach you how to solve the three primary trigonometric functions using: 1) right triangles, and 2) the mnemonic, SOH–CAH-TOA. C B A

Cosine Sine Copyright Additional Resources Tangent Trigonometry Functions Introduction Go Back Continue Instructional Overview Learner Audience: This tutorial is intended for high school or college Trigonometry students. This topic is often touched on in Algebra II, and it’s also applied in Calculus and Physics courses. Learning objectives: When given one of three primary trigonometric functions, students will be be able to identify it’s components. Given a right triangle, with the side and angle measures present, students will correctly used the mnemonic SOH-CAH-TOA to solve three trigonometric functions: - sin(θ) - cos(θ) - tan(θ).

This tutorial presents the three primary trigonometric functions: sine sin(x) cosine written as cos(x) tangent tan(x) C B A

Cosine Sine Copyright Additional Resources Tangent Trigonometry Functions Introduction Go Back Continue Trigonometric Functions In trigonometry, the input value, x, is usually an angle, θ. For cosine, when the input value is 60 degrees, the output value is 0.5. This statement is written as follows: 0.5 = cos(60)

To use SOH- CAH- TOA, you must determine what sides are opposite and adjacent to the angle being input into the trigonometric functions. Hypotenuse C B A Adjacent Opposite Hypotenuse C B A Adjacent Opposite With respect to angle B With respect to angle A
