Trigonometry explores the relationships between angles and side lengths in triangles.

In these videos you'll learn:

  • how to use basic trigonometric functions(eg sin, cos, tan) to find side lengths and angles in triangles
  • rules and identities involving these functions
  • how to convert between degrees and radians.
