Trigonometry (general)

In this course, we will be exploring the topic of trigonometry. We will start by recapping the basic ideas and vocabulary related to trigonometry. After that we will focus on solving for unknown sides and angles in right-angled triangles. We will also look at how trig graphs are formed and what they look like on a Cartesian plane.

Then, we will move on to reduction formulae and focus on the fact that trig relationships repeat themselves in a standardised way, which allows us to simplify the way we do our calculations with trigonometry. Thereafter, we will look at the main trig identities we use to simplify trig relationships and finally we end with solving trig equations in a more general way.
