Example 1
A
In this unit, students will explore and understand relationships that exist between side and
angles of right triangle involving trigonometric functions. If you need more practice go online
textbook at MY.HRW.COM. Students were given username and password. If you forgot your
Concepts Students will Use & Understand

Students

Understand through similarity, side ratios are properties of the angles of a right
triangle, leading to the definitions of trigonometric ratios for acute angles.

sin  

Explain and use the relationship between the sine and cosine of complementary
angles.
Use trigonometric ratios and the Pythagorean Theorem to solve right triangles in
applied problems.


Example 2
Ricardo is standing 75 feet away from the base of a building. The angle of elevation from the ground where
Ricardo is standing to the top of the building is 32  . What is the height of the building, to the nearest tenth
of a foot?
Example 3
An airplane is at an altitude of 5,900 feet. The airplane descends at an angle of 3  . About how far will the airplane
travel in the air before it reaches the ground?
