When motion of an object causes air molecules to vibrate, we hear sound. Analyzing sound waves is an important application of trigonometry. Trigonometric functions arose from the consideration of ratios within right triangles. In calculus trigonometric functions are very important. Every kind of periodic function (recurring behavior) can be modeled to any degree of accuracy by using trigonometric functions.

In geometry, an angle is the union of two rays with a common endpoint. An angle with its vertex at the origin and it initial side along the positive x-axis is said to be in standard position. If the terminal side of an angle is rotating in a counter-clockwise direction, the angle formed is a positive angle; If the terminal side of the angle is rotating in a clockwise direction, the angle is a negative angle. Two angles in standard position, with the same terminal side, are considered coterminal angles. As a terminal side is rotated counterclockwise, its path is a circle. The unit circle is a circle with radius 1.

Quadrantiles Label the unit circle with the most commonly used degrees. The angles in standard position whose terminal sides lie on one of the coordinate axes are called Quadrantiles.

What do a pencil, protractor, ruler, and calculator have in common? They are all tools that do not work or think for themselves. They are only as valuable as the person’s mind and ability to use the tools. Solutions? Click again

Be sure to copy the problem and show work to your answer.

On the next slide we will link to a website where we can practice our angle knowledge. 1.Move the red dot to 15°. Notice the red arc indicates a positive angle. 2.Consider the angle. In the radian box (below the degree box), type “pi” to see radian measure in terms of. 3.Experiment with positive and negative angles. Take note of the locations for: by moving the red dot to these locations. They will be helpful when you quiz yourself. 4.After experimenting, have students come to the interactive whiteboard and take the quiz. If they miss a problem or if they complete the quiz with all correct answers, they should sit down and another student should come forward, reset the quiz, then try again. 5.You can use this website to check your answers to the problems on the previous slide.

Learning Goal: Students will understand radian measure of an angle, be able to find co-terminal angles of a given angle; students will be able to determine the reference angle of a given angle.

Let’s use the website again to verify coterminal angles. Answer the questions first, then verify with the website. Remember, coterminal angles, in standard position, have the same initial side and terminal side, yet have different angle measures. This can happen when considering positive and negative angles. It can also happen as the rotation continues and the angles are greater than Name 3 angles coterminal with the given angle. If the angle is given in degrees, name 3 coterminal angles in degrees. If the angle is given in radians, name 3 coterminal angles in radians. http://www.mathlearning.net/dl2004/Demos/unitCircle.html What can we add or subtract to find coterminal angles? Check you answers:
