Differential solution steps favor Trigonometry problems that have pronumerals as a numerator. More specifically, Trigonometry problems that have pronumerals as a denominator are more complex than Trigonometry problems that have pronumerals as a numerator. In this analysis, the former has more operational lines 2 vs. The rationale for promoting analogical learning for the two types of Trigonometry problems that differ in the location of pronumeral i.
Therefore, similar to the case of learning how to solve trigonometry problems with pronumerals as a numerator e. The three variants of source examples are one-step linear equations that have two operational lines and three relational lines Figure 3. Equations 1, 2 are similar except the location of the pronumeral left side or right side.
For Eq. Equations 2 and 3 are similar with the exception of a decimal number for the latter. As noted earlier, the presence of special features e. Accordingly, the three variants of the linear equations increase in complexity from Eqs. It should be noted that the rationale of completing the tasks in Figures 3 , 4 for learning Trigonometry problems with a pronumeral as a denominator is similar to the rationale of completing the tasks in Figures 1 , 2 for learning Trigonometry problems with a pronumeral as a numerator.
Thus, we will not discuss the tasks in Figures 3 , 4 separately here. An inspection of the solution procedure for the two Trigonometry problem types i. As noted earlier, for example, differential number of relational 3 vs. Figure 4. However, having said this, we contend that prior knowledge e. For example, referring to Figure 4 , a learner may skip Line 2 of the relevant source example i. How can we help learners to distinguish the two types of trigonometry problems: a pronumeral as a numerator e.
Previous research has indicated that secondary school students performed better when the pronumeral is a numerator rather than that of a denominator Kendal and Stacey, ; Weber, The number of operational and relational lines, as we have argued, reflects the complexity of the solution procedure.
As noted previously, the Trigonometry problems that have pronumerals as a numerator have fewer operational e. The concept of learning by comparison, from our point of view, may assist learners to distinguish the two types of Trigonometry problems. We propose to place the two types of Trigonometry problems side-by-side and instruct learners to identify the similarities and differences between them Rittle-Johnson et al. From our inspection, there are a number of possibilities: i the location of the pronumeral i.
Once learners have compared and identified the similarities and differences between the two types of Trigonometry problems, we predict that they would have noticed differential algebraic transformation skills involved in solving these two types of Trigonometry problems.
Figure 5. A comparison between solution procedure of two types of trigonometry problems. One notable characteristic for identification, in this case, relates to the location of the pronumeral i. Learning and mastering this basic step, we contend, may facilitate understanding of Trigonometry problems that have pronumerals as both numerator and denominator. Figure 6. A comparison between an equation with pronumeral as numerator and an equation with pronumeral as denominator.
Trigonometry, indeed, is a difficult topic for many secondary students, especially when we confound Trigonometry problems with the location of the pronumeral i. We argue that it is possible to counter this pervasive issue by considering the use of learning theories—in this case, learning by analogy and learning by comparison concepts Kurtz et al.
Our conceptualization, as detailed in the preceding sections, proposed a mental representation of three variants of source examples. Of these three variants of source examples, we select one relevant source example for the target problem. We highlight the mapping of a relevant source example and the first solution step of the target problem in order to achieve optimal alignment between these two problems.
Our proposition, in its totality, has advanced the study of learning by analogy for its deliberation on a relevant source example from three variants of source examples. This pedagogical contention is different from previous research e. Moreover, we emphasize a subset of the target problem and not the whole target problem for the purpose of implementing a one-to-one mapping task between the relevant source example and the first solution step of the target problem.
Therefore, we recommend a comparison between a source example and a subset of a target problem to facilitate analogical learning. At the same time, capitalizing on the significance of learning by comparison, we consider the use of comparison within the context of Trigonometry problems for their similarities and differences.
Our conceptualization, which to date researchers have not studied, is innovative for its emphasis on the simultaneous comparison of different types of Trigonometry problems. This comparison of two types of Trigonometry problems side-by-side, in particular, seeks to overcome the long-standing difficulty of learning Trigonometry problems that differ because of the relative position of the pronumeral i.
With this in mind, we urge educators to consider the use of the instructional practices that help students to recognize and understand the two main Trigonometry problem types. How can the concepts of learning by analogy and learning by comparison assist us in our pedagogical practices in other areas of mathematics? Consider in this case the learning of Algebra expression problems , which is presented in Figure 7. For example, as shown, 2 a simply means that 2 is multiplied by a a variable.
From this consideration, in a secondary school, a student may compare the two equations side-by-side and deduce that 2 is equaled to a , and 5 is equaled to b. In a similar vein, we contend that it is of value to consider learning by comparison as an instructional tool, which could facilitate the learning of linear equations. As a point of comparison of linear equations that have a fraction e. Figure 7. Examples of mathematics learning via learning by analogy and learning by comparison. In conclusion, as educators, we recognize the important topic of Trigonometry.
Moreover, from our professional experiences, we acknowledge that there is a pervasive issue when Trigonometry problems have pronumerals that operate as both a numerator and a denominator. This distinction i. In this analysis, considering the effectiveness of both learning by analogy and learning by comparison, we proposed an alternative sequence of steps for students to follow. We recommend educators to implement and explore the potentiality of our proposition when teaching two types of Trigonometry problems that differ in terms of the relative location of the pronumeral i.

Solution Procedure of Linear Equations In line with prior studies e. Figure 1. Three variants of source examples. Figure 2. Solution procedure of a relevant source example and a target problem. So, in my many triangle pictures the "x" is in the vertical direction. You can see that for all of these triangles the x value is essentially constant. But the angle, the hypotenuse, and the other side y all change. Once I have all these triangles, I can start to measure some stuff.
Let's start with the smallest angle of 5 degrees. In this case, I have the x value at 5 centimeters and the y value is 0. Just to be clear, I drew this triangle and then I measured the sides with a ruler—no math involved yet. What would happen if I drew another right triangle with one of the angles at 5 degrees, just like the one in the picture, but in this new triangle the x side is 1 meter long?
Yes, the new, larger triangle would have the exact same shape. With a longer x side, however, it will also have a larger y side. But since this is a similar triangle, the ratio of the y to x side should be the same for both the large and the small triangle. So, if you find this y-to-x side ratio y divided by x it should be the same for ALL right triangles with one of the angles being 5 degrees.
OK, what about a triangle with a 10 degree angle? What about a 15 degree angle? Let's just do this. It doesn't look like much, but trust me—this is super awesome. This plot shows the ratio of sides for pretty much ANY right triangle since it's a ratio of sides.
In fact, it could even be a virtual right triangle with sides that are velocities instead of distances. With this curve I find out everything I need to know about that right triangle with just an angle and the length of the hypotenuse. Knowledge is power as you will see. But where is the trig? This is the trig. That curve above is a special function. It's called the tangent function. If you put an angle into this function, it gives you the ratio of y to x. You could write this tangent function as:.
But remember it's just a function. Let's look at another function. But if I use the triangle above, I only get angles from 5 to 80 degrees. I want MORE angles. What if instead of keeping the x side of the triangle constant, I keep the hypotenuse constant? In that case you can imagine a line of fixed length sweeping around a set point.
As this set line sweeps around, it would create a circle. AH HA! You knew trig was really about circles. Alas, not really. It just happens that it's easy to show trig functions with a circle, but trig functions are really about right triangles. Don't be fooled.
Let's draw a bunch of triangles. You can do this too. I'm just going to take an old CD you know Then I'm going to approximate the location of the center and draw a bunch of triangles. The numbers next to the lines for the different triangles are just my measurements of the y side length in centimeters. I drew a triangle for angles at 10 degree increments so I should be easy to figure out the angle for each triangle.
I recommend drawing your own set of triangles. You can't really understand something just by looking at it; you have to do it yourself it's not hard. Two things to notice before getting to the graph. First, what I call "y" could also be called the "opposite" side of the triangle. Second, if the y side of the triangle is below the x-axis I'm going to give it a negative length. That will be useful later. Here is my plot of opposite over hypotenuse vs. Remember, these are actual measurements from actual triangles so it's not perfect.
Check that out. Are you excited? I am surprisingly excited that this worked out fairly nicely. You should be excited too, but if you aren't that's OK I guess. But your eyes do not deceive you. That is indeed the sine function. This function is very similar to the tangent function except that it is the ratio of the opposite side of the triangle opposite from the angle and the hypotenuse.
You could also calculate the ratio of the adjacent side divided by the hypotenuse—we call this the cosine function. OK, now for some important notes on these functions. One other very important point. If you are using angles in degrees, make sure your calculator or your lookup table is in degrees.
If you are using radians, then your calculator needs to be in radians mode. You would not believe how often I see students make this mistake. But what is the difference between radians and degrees? Let's go over that. First, I guess we should talk about degrees. Why are there degrees for a full circle? Why not degrees? Wouldn't that make more sense? Actually, no.
Trigonometric ratios can also be represented using the unit circle , which is the circle of radius 1 centered at the origin in the plane. Using the unit circle , one can extend the definitions of trigonometric ratios to all positive and negative arguments  see trigonometric function. The following table summarizes the properties of the graphs of the six main trigonometric functions:  .
Because the six main trigonometric functions are periodic, they are not injective or, 1 to 1 , and thus are not invertible. By restricting the domain of a trigonometric function, however, they can be made invertible. The names of the inverse trigonometric functions, together with their domains and range, can be found in the following table:  : 48ff  : ff.
When considered as functions of a real variable, the trigonometric ratios can be represented by an infinite series. For instance, sine and cosine have the following representations: . With these definitions the trigonometric functions can be defined for complex numbers. This complex exponential function, written in terms of trigonometric functions, is particularly useful.
Trigonometric functions were among the earliest uses for mathematical tables. Scientific calculators have buttons for calculating the main trigonometric functions sin, cos, tan, and sometimes cis and their inverses. Most computer programming languages provide function libraries that include the trigonometric functions.
In addition to the six ratios listed earlier, there are additional trigonometric functions that were historically important, though seldom used today. See List of trigonometric identities for more relations between these functions. For centuries, spherical trigonometry has been used for locating solar, lunar, and stellar positions,  predicting eclipses, and describing the orbits of the planets.
In modern times, the technique of triangulation is used in astronomy to measure the distance to nearby stars,  as well as in satellite navigation systems. Historically, trigonometry has been used for locating latitudes and longitudes of sailing vessels, plotting courses, and calculating distances during navigation. Trigonometry is still used in navigation through such means as the Global Positioning System and artificial intelligence for autonomous vehicles.
In land surveying , trigonometry is used in the calculation of lengths, areas, and relative angles between objects. On a larger scale, trigonometry is used in geography to measure distances between landmarks. The sine and cosine functions are fundamental to the theory of periodic functions ,  such as those that describe sound and light waves. Fourier discovered that every continuous , periodic function could be described as an infinite sum of trigonometric functions. Even non-periodic functions can be represented as an integral of sines and cosines through the Fourier transform.
This has applications to quantum mechanics  and communications ,  among other fields. Trigonometry is useful in many physical sciences ,  including acoustics ,  and optics. Other fields that use trigonometry or trigonometric functions include music theory ,  geodesy , audio synthesis ,  architecture ,  electronics ,  biology ,  medical imaging CT scans and ultrasound ,  chemistry ,  number theory and hence cryptology ,  seismology ,  meteorology ,  oceanography ,  image compression ,  phonetics ,  economics ,  electrical engineering , mechanical engineering , civil engineering ,  computer graphics ,  cartography ,  crystallography  and game development.
Trigonometry has been noted for its many identities, that is, equations that are true for all possible inputs. Identities involving only angles are known as trigonometric identities. Other equations, known as triangle identities ,  relate both the sides and angles of a given triangle.
In the following identities, A , B and C are the angles of a triangle and a , b and c are the lengths of sides of the triangle opposite the respective angles as shown in the diagram. The law of sines also known as the "sine rule" for an arbitrary triangle states: .
The law of cosines known as the cosine formula, or the "cos rule" is an extension of the Pythagorean theorem to arbitrary triangles: . Given two sides a and b and the angle between the sides C , the area of the triangle is given by half the product of the lengths of two sides and the sine of the angle between the two sides: .
Heron's formula is another method that may be used to calculate the area of a triangle. This formula states that if a triangle has sides of lengths a , b , and c , and if the semiperimeter is. The following trigonometric identities are related to the Pythagorean theorem and hold for any value: .
Other commonly used trigonometric identities include the half-angle identities, the angle sum and difference identities, and the product-to-sum identities. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Trig disambiguation.

Because the angle is rotating around and around the circle the Sine, Cosine and Tangent functions repeat once every full rotation see Amplitude, Period, Phase Shift and Frequency. It helps us in Solving Triangles.
When we know any 3 of the sides or angles we can find the other 3 except for the three angles case. See Solving Triangles for more details. Similar to Sine, Cosine and Tangent, there are three other trigonometric functions which are made by dividing one side by another:. The Trigonometric Identities are equations that are true for all right-angled triangles.
The Triangle Identities are equations that are true for all triangles they don't have to have a right angle. Why a Right-Angled Triangle? Why is this triangle so important? Imagine we can measure along and up but want to know the direct distance and angle: Trigonometry can find that missing angle and distance. Or maybe we have a distance and angle and need to "plot the dot" along and up: Questions like these are common in engineering, computer animation and more.
And trigonometry gives the answers! Example: How Tall is The Tree? We can now put 0. We know: 0. Right Angle.
But remember it's just a function. Let's look at another function. But if I use the triangle above, I only get angles from 5 to 80 degrees. I want MORE angles. What if instead of keeping the x side of the triangle constant, I keep the hypotenuse constant? In that case you can imagine a line of fixed length sweeping around a set point. As this set line sweeps around, it would create a circle. AH HA! You knew trig was really about circles.
Alas, not really. It just happens that it's easy to show trig functions with a circle, but trig functions are really about right triangles. Don't be fooled. Let's draw a bunch of triangles. You can do this too. I'm just going to take an old CD you know Then I'm going to approximate the location of the center and draw a bunch of triangles.
The numbers next to the lines for the different triangles are just my measurements of the y side length in centimeters. I drew a triangle for angles at 10 degree increments so I should be easy to figure out the angle for each triangle. I recommend drawing your own set of triangles. You can't really understand something just by looking at it; you have to do it yourself it's not hard.
Two things to notice before getting to the graph. First, what I call "y" could also be called the "opposite" side of the triangle. Second, if the y side of the triangle is below the x-axis I'm going to give it a negative length. That will be useful later. Here is my plot of opposite over hypotenuse vs. Remember, these are actual measurements from actual triangles so it's not perfect. Check that out. Are you excited? I am surprisingly excited that this worked out fairly nicely.
You should be excited too, but if you aren't that's OK I guess. But your eyes do not deceive you. That is indeed the sine function. This function is very similar to the tangent function except that it is the ratio of the opposite side of the triangle opposite from the angle and the hypotenuse. You could also calculate the ratio of the adjacent side divided by the hypotenuse—we call this the cosine function.
OK, now for some important notes on these functions. One other very important point. If you are using angles in degrees, make sure your calculator or your lookup table is in degrees. If you are using radians, then your calculator needs to be in radians mode. You would not believe how often I see students make this mistake.
But what is the difference between radians and degrees? Let's go over that. First, I guess we should talk about degrees. Why are there degrees for a full circle? Why not degrees? Wouldn't that make more sense? Actually, no. You can divide it by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, This means that by breaking a circle into "parts," you can also break it into many other parts.
This is great if you are dealing with fractions instead of decimals. So, that's why we have the unit of degrees. What about radians? How about this? Consider just part of a circle. Something like this. It would be fun to actually draw something like this. You could then measure the value of r the radius the angle and the arc-length s.
You could also calculate the arc-length. Since this is part of a circle, the arc-length would be with the angle in measured in degrees :. Essentially this takes the angle as a fraction of the total circle. That means the arc-length will be a fraction of the circumference of the circle. But wait! What if we just use an angle that doesn't have to do this silly fraction? What if we write the arc-length as:. Boom—that's your angle measurement in radians.
It allows us to make a fraction-less connection between the angle and the arc-length. In many ways it's better than an angle measured in degrees since it's more "natural". But now for the last question: why do we even need trig? Or perhaps you might ask, who cares about right triangles? You care. At least you should care.
The main reason but not the only to use trig is for vectors. I'm going to give a quick intro to vectors, but if you want more details, check out this older post. We'll explain how we got that answer later. This means the slope of our rigging rope is 2. Since the rigging point is 30 feet from the base of the mast, the mast must be 2.
It works the same in the metric system: 2. Before we explain those functions, some additional terminology is needed. Sides and angles that touch are described as adjacent. Every side has two adjacent angles. The two remaining sides are called legs. Usually we are interested as in the example above in an angle other than the right angle.
When applied to an angle measure, the three trigonometric functions produce the various combinations of ratios of side lengths. From our ship-mast example before, the relationship between an angle and its tangent can be determined from its graph, shown below.
The graphs of sine and cosine are included as well. Worth mentioning, though beyond the scope of this article, is that these functions relate to each other through a great variety of intricate equations known as identities , equations that are always true. Each trigonometric function also has an inverse that can be used to find an angle from a ratio of sides.
The inverses of sin x , cos x , and tan x , are arcsin x , arccos x and arctan x , respectively. It can be used with all triangles and all shapes with straight sides, which are treated as a collection of triangles. For any triangle, across the six measures of sides and angles, if at least three are known the other three can usually be determined. Unknown side lengths and angles are determined using the following tools:.
Trigonometry follows a similar path as algebra : it was developed in the ancient Middle East and through trade and immigration moved to Greece, India, medieval Arabia and finally Europe where consequently, colonialism made it the version most people are taught today.
