Trigonometry Review

Topic Review on "Title":


A degree is a unit of angle measurement equal to 1/360 of a circle’s circumference.


A radian is a unit of angle measurement that is the ratio of the circle arc cut off by an angle to the central angle.


Sine on a unit circle is the “y” coordinate for any intersection between a standard angle and the circle.

Cosine on a unit circle is the “x” coordinate for any intersection between a standard angle and the circle.


The ratio of sine to cosine or, in a right triangle, is the ratio of the length of the opposite side to the length of the adjacent side.

Reference Angle:
A reference angle is the angle between 0 and 90 made with the x axis.

Form of a Trigonometric Function:

Trigonometric functions take the form where A,B, C, and D are coefficients that change the characteristics of that trigonometric function.

Graphs of Trigonometric Functions: 

Graphs may be affected wildly as follows:
Stretching or compressing it along the x-axis
Stretching or compressing it along the y-axis
Moving it up or down along the y-axis

"Title" Tutorial Summary :

Trigonometry is an important branch of mathematics that is important to learn so advanced Calculus principles can be covered. The measure of angles using radians and degrees is covered with the help of examples.  Converting degree measure to radian measure is performed using the fact that 180 degrees equals to pi.

The trigonometric functions used in a Calculus course and their graphs are shown with the use of examples and graphs. The Reference Angle Theorem is used in conjunction with basic trigonometric identities so simplification of trigonometric expressions can be performed. The sine and cosine functions are defined in relation to the unit circle and special right triangles.

Tutorial Features:

Specific Tutorial Features:

  • Examples are given to show the properties of trigonometric functions.
