The Six Trig Functions

Objective: To define and use the six trig functions

SOH CAH TOA

• We will start by looking at three of the trig functions: the sine, cosine, and tangent. We will use a right triangle to help define them.

SOH CAH TOA

• Each of these functions has a reciprocal function. The cosecant goes with the sine, the secant goes with the cosine, and the cotangent goes with the tangent.

• You Try: Use the following triangle to find the value of all six trig functions.

• Again, you need to use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the missing side.

Example 2

• We will use our knowledge of a 45-45-90 triangle to find the sin, cos, and tan of a 450 angle. We will look at this on a unit circle (a circle with a radius of 1).

Trig Identities

• We stated earlier that some functions were reciprocals of others. We will now look at them this way:

The Calculator

• Your calculator only has the sin, cos, and tan functions on it. To find the other three, you need to use your reciprocal relationships.

Angle of Elevation/Depression

• From the horizontal, looking up at an object is called the angle of elevation.

• From the horizontal, looking down at an object is called the angle of depression.

Example 7

• A surveyor is standing 115 feet from the base of the Washington Monument. The surveyor measures the angle of elevation to the top of the monument as 78.30. How tall is the Washington Monument?
