Concept: Triangles
Unit 6  Trigonometry
TRIGONOMETRY IS THE STUDY OF THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ANGLES AND SIDES IN A TRIANGLE
Essential Questions
How do you use sin, cos and tan to find missing sides or angles of right triangles?
How do you use trigonometry to solve real world problems?
How does Geometric reasoning explain or describe the structure of our world?
Iowa Core Standards1. Use trigonometric ratios and the Pythagorean Theorem to solve right triangles in applied problems.★
2. Explain and use the relationship between the sine and cosine of complementary angles. 3. Understand that by similarity, side ratios in right triangles are properties of the angles in the triangle, leading to definitions of trigonometric ratios for acute angles. 4. (+) Understand and apply the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines to find unknown measurements in right and nonright triangles (e.g., surveying problems, resultant forces).

Day 1: Background Information...You MUST learn the following preinformation before you can successfully use trigonometry to solve triangles.
This video helps you Identify opposite, adjacent, and opposite in any right triangle
After you learn to set up problems, you will learn how to enter them in your calculator.
