TRIGONOMETRY UNIT NOTES PART 1 1 Precalculus Pretest- Trig Name:____________________________________ Date:_____________________________________ 1. Given triangle ABC with hypotenuse AB. If AC = 5 and BC = 9, find: a. AB b. Angle A 2. A man stands on the top of a 1000 foot building. He notices a car on the ground and an angle of depression of 32 degrees. How far away from the base of the building is the car? 3. A submarine uses SONAR to detect the passage of other vessels. A submarine detects an enemy destroyer on the surface of the ocean at an angle of elevation of 61 degrees. In order to target the destroyer, the sub needs to determine the range to the target (the straight line distance between the two vessels). If the sub is traveling at a depth of 650 feet, what is the range of the target? 4. Find cos 210 without using a calculator. 2 Precalculus Lesson- Intro to Trigonometry Name:____________________________________ Date:_____________________________________ Objective: To review special right triangles and learn the basics about trig ratios. DO NOW: 1) Find the measure of the hypotenuse of a right triangle if the legs are 1 and 2. 2) Given equilateral triangle ABC, find the length of the altitude to AB if BC=4. 3) What is the length of the diagonal of square ABCD if AB=5? __________________________________________________________________________________________ The Three Basic Trig Functions ex: Find the length of the missing side of the triangle and the exact value of the three trigonometric functions of the angle theta ( ) in the figures below: 1) 5 12 2) 7 11 3 3) 3 4) 2 5) Find the values of the three trigonometric functions for angle coordinates (-3, -5) lies on its terminal side. 7 1 in standard position if a point with the 4 Trigonometric Function Origin Timeline Hindu text Aryabhatiya of Aryabhata is written and refers to a half-chord known as ardhajya Ca. 510 a.d. ardha-jya or half chord is turned around to jya-ardha (“chordhalf”) which in due time is shortened to jya or jiva (or bowstring). Edmund Gunter coins the term: cotangens, which later becomes cotangent or “complement of tangent” The first printed table of secants appeared in the work Canon doctrinae triangulorum By Leipzig Ca. 1114-1187 a.d. Aryabhatiya is translated from Hindu to Arabic. Jiva becomes Jiba which becomes Jayb. When translated into Latin from Arabic, Jayb (bosom of a garment) becomes Sinus (meaning a bend or gulf, or the bosom of a garment). Anatomical meaning: cavities or bays in the facial bones 1551 1583 Tangent is translated from Latin Tangere, to touch. 1585-95 1620 Sinus is translated to Sine in English which means curve, fold, pocket. Geometric definition established: a line drawn from one extreme of an arc of a circle to the diameter that passes through its other extremity. Sir Jonas Moore introduces “Cos” as the abbreviation for “cosinus” 1658 Edmund Gunter coins the term cosinus which means “complement of sinus” 1674 1700 The term “Cosecant:” complement of secant is coined 5 Precalculus Activity- Discovering trig functions Objective: To learn the origin of trig functions. DO NOW: What are the 3 trig ratios? Name:__________________________________________ Date:___________________________________________ Follow the directions below and be sure to round each answer to the nearest ten-thousandth. 1. Each person in your group should have a set of 3 triangles: a. 45-45-90 b. 30-60-90 c. 53-37-90 2. Measure the dimensions of each 45-45-90 right triangle (triangle 1) and write the results in the table provided. 3. Create sine, cosine, and tangent ratios for your 45-45-90 right triangle (results should be rounded to the nearest ten-thousandth) 4. Average the corresponding ratios with the other members in your group. 5. Repeat the process using the 30-60-90 triangle using the 30 degree angle as reference (triangle 2) 6. Then repeat the process using the 60 degree angle as a reference (also triangle 2 but from a different perspective) 7. Finally, repeat the process using the 53-37-90 triangle (triangle 3) 6 Angle 45 1 30 2 60 Also 2 53 3 Length of Horizontal Leg Length of Vertical Leg Length of Hypotenuse Your Ratios (4 decimals) Group Average Ratios Class Average Ratios Sin 45= Sin 45= Sin 45= Cos 45= Cos 45= Cos 45= Tan 45= Tan 45= Tan 45= Sin 30= Sin 30= Sin 30= Cos 30= Cos 30= Cos 30= Tan 30= Tan 30= Tan 30= Sin 60= Sin 60= Sin 60= Cos 60= Cos 60= Cos 60= Tan 60= Tan 60= Tan 60= Sin 53= Sin 53= Sin 53= Cos 53= Cos 53= Cos 53= Tan 53= Tan 53= Tan 53= 7 Follow Up Questions 1. What did we accomplish by averaging the corresponding ratios? 2. Will this process work for the sine, cosine, tangent for an angle of any measure? Why/why not? 3. Find the percent difference from the observed class averages and actual values of sine, cosine, and tangent for each of the angles? Observed Actual 100 Formula: Actual Example: Let’s say my class determined the sine of 45 degrees to be 0.7273. But, my calculator says it should be 0.7071. I would take my answer and subtract from it the actual answer and then divide by the actual answer. .7273 .7071 100 2.8567% .7071 That tells me that my answer was off by 2.8567% for sine. So I would enter that in the appropriate box. So… Angle 45 % Difference for Sine % Difference for Cosine % Difference for Tangent 30 60 53 4. Are there significant percent differences between the Observed and Actual trig ratios? What factors might cause such percent variations? 8 Precalculus Homework- Discovering trig functions Name:__________________________________________ Date:___________________________________________ Create a set of 4 similar triangles (triangles that have the same angles but are different sizes), on separate paper, with the same reference angle (any angle except the ones used in this activity) and complete the table.

Precalculus Lesson: Name:____________________________________ Determining the number of Distinct triangles (ambiguous case) Date:_____________________________________ Objective: To determine the number of distinct triangles that can be formed given an angle and two consecutive sides DO NOW: The sides of a triangle measure 6, 7, and 9. What is the largest angle in the triangle? __________________________________________________________________________________________ Ambiguous Case: This is the case in the Law of Sines ( SSA) where there may be none, one, or two distinct triangles for which you can solve. There is a shortcut method to finding the number of distinct triangles that exist: Assume: Given two sides and one opposite angle: If a is acute: a b sin a no solution If a is obtuse: a b sin a one solution b a b sin a two solutions a b a b a b no solution one solution one solution Examples: How Many distinct triangles can be formed from the given information? 1. a 2 , b 3, m A 45 2. a 9, b 12, and m A 35 53 54 Trig Unit Part 2 Definitions, Laws & Formulas The following trigonometric identities hold for all values of expression is defined: Reciprocal Identities where each sin 1 csc cos 1 sec tan 1 cot csc 1 sin sec 1 cos cot 1 tan The following trigonometric identities hold for all values of Quotient expression is defined: Identities sin cos tan sin cos where each cot Two angles in standard position that have the same terminal side. If is the degree Coterminal measure of an angle, then all angles measuring + 360k , where k is an integer, Angles are coterminal with . Since angles differing in degree measure by multiples of 360 are equivalent, every angle has infinitely many coterminal angles. A reference angle is the acute angle formed by the terminal side of the given angle and the x-axis. So, for any angle , 0 < < 360 , its reference angle is defined by: (a) , when the terminal side is in Quadrant I (b) 180 – , when the terminal side is in Quadrant II Reference Angles (c) – 180 , when the terminal side is in Quadrant III (d) 360 – , when the terminal side is in Quadrant IV If the measure of is greater than 360 or less than 0 , it can be associated with a coterminal angle of positive measure between 0 and 360 .
