Trigonometry through Right Triangles
Lecture no. 17 from the course: Geometry: An Interactive Journey to Mastery
Taught by Professor James Tanton | 27 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
The trig identities you explored in the last lecture go beyond circles. Learn how to define all of them just using triangles (expressed in the famous acronym SOHCAHTOA). Then, uncover how trigonometry is practically applied by architects and engineers to measure the heights of buildings.
