They are called special right triangles: 30⁰ - 60⁰- 90˚ right triangle 45⁰ - 45⁰ - 90˚right triangle The 2 websites explain the relationship that exists between the length of the legs and hypotenuse for both types. Special Right Triangles

Special Right Triangle Practice Website The website provides practice problems using the relationships of the sides of the special right triangles. Special Right Triangles Practice

Right Triangle Trig VideoRight Triangle Trig Video Trig Ratios WebsiteTrig Ratios WebsiteRight Triangle Trig VideoRight Triangle Trig Video Trig Ratios WebsiteTrig Ratios Website As you learned in the previous resources, the ratios of the sides of the special right triangles are always constant, regardless of the size of the triangles. This is also true of any right triangle. In this video and website, you will learn about these ratios and the common memory device for remembering the ratios: SOH CAH TOA Right Triangle Trig Ratios: Sine, Cosine, Tangent

Practice Problems Website On this website you will read example problems as well as review questions. Solve # 1-9. Then check your work by looking at the review answers to questions # 1-9. Right Triangle Trig Practice Problems

Six Trig Ratios Video Three additional trig ratios exist, the reciprocal ratios: The reciprocal of the sine ratio is the cosecant (csc) = hypotenuse/opposite The reciprocal of the cosine ratio is the secant (sec) = hypotenuse/adjacent The reciprocal of the tangent ratio is the cotangent (cot) = adjacent/opposite The video reviews all six trig functions. Three Additional Trig Ratios: Cotanget, Cosecant, Secant (Reciprocals)

Practice Problems Website On this website you will find practice problems using the Pythagorean Theorem and/or right triangle trig. Try to solve the problems. The answers and an explanation are provided. Right Triangle Trig Practice Problems

Radian PDF Radian VideoRadian PDF Radian Video The measure of an angle is determined by the amount of rotation from the initial side (starting side) to the terminal side (position after rotation). Degree is one unit used to measure the size of an angle. Another way to measure angles is the unit radian. In the study of trig angles are measured in either degrees or radians. On the PDF focus on sections 1 – 5. Angles: Degree and Radian Measure

Unit Circle PDFUnit Circle PDF Standard Position/Coterminal Angle Video Unit Circle Video Standard Position/Coterminal Angle VideoUnit Circle VideoUnit Circle PDFUnit Circle PDF Standard Position/Coterminal Angle Video Unit Circle Video Standard Position/Coterminal Angle VideoUnit Circle Video Right triangles only allow for trig ratios to be defined for positive acute angles (angles less than 90˚) The unit circle is used to extend trig ratio definitions to angle measures ≥ 90˚ and negative angles. The unit circle is used to evaluate trig ratios for any size angle. The PDF defines all six trig functions on the unit circle (radius of one unit). Also explained is the meaning of an angle to be in standard position as does the first video along with what it means for angles to be conterminal. The second video focuses on the 3 primary trig ratios: sin, cos and tan Trig ratios for Angles ≥ 90˚

Use of Unit Circle Video Unit Circle WebsiteUse of Unit Circle VideoUnit Circle Website Use of Unit Circle Video Unit Circle WebsiteUse of Unit Circle VideoUnit Circle Website The video defines the cos and sin ratios on the unit circle and highlights when the ratios are positive and negative. The solutions to the problems on the website can be viewed by scrolling over the green blocks. Language note: saying the sine OR the sine of an angle refers to the sine ratio.

Reference Angles WebsiteReference Angles Website Patterns in the Unit Circle VideoPatterns in the Unit Circle VideoReference Angles WebsiteReference Angles Website Patterns in the Unit Circle VideoPatterns in the Unit Circle Video Included on the website is an applet to practice naming the reference angle for angles in quadrants II, III and IV. Drag the “angle slider” or type in a specific angle measurement to view various angle measures in standard position and their corresponding reference angles. The video introduces how the use of standard angle measures allow for patterns to be seen in each quadrants. Patterns in the Unit Circle: Reference Angles

Unit Circle PDF Print out the Unit Circle PDF. Marked on the unit circle are the coordinates of the special right triangles (30/60/90 and 45/45/90). Any size angle can be located on a unit circle, however it is expected that you know the special right triangles coordinates without the aid of a calculator. Remember there are patterns among the quadrants. Use reference angles for angles not in Quadrant I. Remember on the unit circle the sin ratio of an angle is the y- coordinate of the point on the circle; and the cos ratio is the x- coordinate. Sin and Cos Ratios for Special Angles on the Unit Circle

Practice on Unit Circle Video As the measure of an angle varies so does the sine and cosine ratios. As the angle measure (independent variable) changes so do the trig ratios (dependent variable). For example: a 15° angle has a cosine ratio slightly less than 1; whereas an 82° angle has a cosine ratio close to 0. The video show examples of angle measures that are not all special angles [multiples of 30˚( π/6 radians) or 45˚(π/4 radians)]. These ratios can be found using a calculator. TI Calculator note: Use the MODE key to toggle between radian and degree measures. Sin and Cos of Non-Special Angles on the Unit Circle

Sin and Cos WebsiteSin and Cos Website Quadrantal angles videoQuadrantal angles videoSin and Cos WebsiteSin and Cos Website Quadrantal angles videoQuadrantal angles video Hit the red arrow to drag the red point around the circle. Notice how the values of x (cos) and y (sin) change and the smallest and largest each ratio can be and at what angle these occur. Note when the point is on an axis (multiples of 90° or π/2 radians). These are called quadrantal angles as the video explains. Scroll down the applet page and again hit the red arrow then drag the red dot around the circle. The resulting graphs show the relationship between varying angle measures and the sin (blue) and cos (green) ratios. Graphs of Sin and Cos Functions

Graph of Sin and Cos Video Trig functions relate angle measures to the various trig ratios; the independent variable is the angle measure and the dependent variable is the trig ratio. The video explains how specific points on the unit circle can be used to draw the standard sin and cos function graphs. The standard (or basic) sin and cos functions are: y = sin x y = cos x Graphs of Sin and Cos Functions Continued

Trig Function Parameters Website Trig functions have 4 parameters generally named: a, b, c, d outlined on the website. Think about linear functions (y = mx + b) and their 2 parameters, m and b. For example: the standard (or basic) sin function: y = sin x has the parameters: a = 1; b = 1; c = 0; d = 0 y = 1 sin 1(x – 0) + 0 Trig Function Parameters

Sin Cos Vertical & Horizontal Shift Video Sin Cos Vertical & Horizontal Shift Video Sin Cos Period, Amplitude VideoSin Cos Period, Amplitude Video Sin Cos Vertical & Horizontal Shift Video Sin Cos Vertical & Horizontal Shift Video Sin Cos Period, Amplitude VideoSin Cos Period, Amplitude Video Transformations: Basics The videos discuss the 4 transformation types: amplitude, period and horizontal and vertical shifts IMPORTANT: The use of the four parameters (a, b, c, d) is not universal. The main variations are: y = a sin [b (x + c)] + d AND y = a sin (bx – c) + d In the first b is factored out and the opposite of c is the horizontal shift; in the second b is not factored out and c/b is the horizontal shift The mathispower4u video switches the naming of c and d; however what you name the parameters is not important. Pay attention to what values operate on the angle measure before the trig ratio is found; and what values operate on the trig ratio. Some trig functions name the angle variable (input) using x; and others use θ. Be careful to note how each of the resources name the general trig function.

Inverse Trig Function Notation Website You have determined the length of a side of a triangle using the trig ratios and functions. Sometimes, we know the lengths of the sides of a triangle but we want to find the angle whose sides ratios are known. To do this, we use inverse trig functions. The notation for the inverse sine function is sin -1 (x) or arcsin(x) where x represents the known sine ratio. The inverse cosine function is cos -1 (x) or arccos(x) The inverse tangent function is tan -1 (x) or arctan(x) The website explains a common notational misunderstanding.
