Trigonometry and Vectors 1.Trigonometry, triangle measure, from Greek. 2.Mathematics that deals with the sides and angles of triangles, and their relationships. 3.Computational Geometry (Geometry – earth measure). 4.Deals mostly with right triangles. 5.Historically developed for astronomy and geography. 6.Not the work of any one person or nation – spans 1000s yrs. 7.REQUIRED for the study of Calculus. 8.Currently used mainly in physics, engineering, and chemistry, with applications in natural and social sciences. Background – Trigonometry

Trigonometry and Vectors 1.Total degrees in a triangle: 2.Three angles of the triangle below: 3.Three sides of the triangle below: 4.Pythagorean Theorem: x 2 + y 2 = r 2 a 2 + b 2 = c 2 Trigonometry 180 A B C r, y, and x y x r HYPOTENUSE A, B, and C

Trigonometry and Vectors State the Pythagorean Theorem in words: “The sum of the squares of the two sides of a right triangle is equal to the square of the hypotenuse.” Pythagorean Theorem: x 2 + y 2 = r 2 Trigonometry A B C y x r HYPOTENUSE
