INTRODUCTION TO SINE, COSINE AND TANGENT

In this module, you can study how to calculate sine, cosine and tangent for the angles of a right triangle; how to use SohCahToa to remember the formulae for calculating sine, cosine and tangent.

 

Did you know?

"Adjacent" and "opposite" sides can change, depending on which angle you start from.

"Cos(x)" means "the cosine of x degrees"; it does NOT mean multiply the cosine by x.
