This workshop provides a refresher on the fundamentals of right angled trigonometry. Topics covered will include:
- degree and radian measure, and how to convert from one to the other
- determining sine, cosine and tangent ratios of special angles, without using your calculator!
- representing angles on the unit circle, and using the coordinate system to find trigonometric ratios
- determining the angle of interest, given one or more trig ratios
Designed For:† In particular, this is a new workshop created for students in MA121 & MA122†to help with the material on polar representation of a complex number.† Calculus students from MA100, MA101†and MA110 may also be interested.† And as always, any WLU registered student is welcome to attend.
Dates/Times Offered (Fall Term 2012):† TBA†††
Workshop Materials:†† The Unit Circle
