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?

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

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)

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…

% Difference for Sine
% Difference for Cosine

Are there significant percent differences between the Observed and Actual trig ratios? What factors might cause such percent variations?

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 .
This special relationship shows that cofunctions have equivalent values for
complementary angles:
sin = cos (90 – )
cos = sin (90 – )

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 .
This special relationship shows that cofunctions have equivalent values for
complementary angles:

(a) Draw a labeled diagram to model this situation.
(b) Which kite is higher and by how much (to the nearest tenth)?
(10) A landscaper is developing the grounds of Polynomial Park. He has sketched
plans for the area, as shown in the quadrilateral PQRS seen to the right.
(a) A walkway is to be constructed from point S to Q. Find, to the nearest
tenth of a foot, the length of this walkway.
(b) Using your answer from part (a), find, to the nearest tenth, the area of the
park.
(11) Find all solutions for each ABC given the following information, using the Laws of Sines and Cosines.
If no solutions exist, write none. Round each answer to the nearest tenth.
(a) a = 32.9 ft, b = 42.4 ft, c = 20.4 ft
(b) c = 15 in, A = 42 , B = 68
(c) a = 172 mi, c = 203 mi, A = 38.7
(d) A = 92.6 , B = 88.9 , a = 15.2 cm
