    • Sine/Cosine/Tangent Focus: Find out who is sohacahtoa and why is the spelling of his name so important?
    • sohcahtoa
      • SOHCAHTOA was the chief of the Trigonometric Tribe. He was a very wise man and people would go to him to solve their most pressing problems. Legend has it that he is the grandson of Sacajewea, for whom a famous park was erected in SW Washington state in time for Lewis and Clark to have a bath.
    • sohcahtoa
      • SOHCAHTOA, a contemporary of Pythagorus, worked on finding ways to solve lengths and distances on right triangles.
      • SOHCAHTOA is a famous dead mathematician, but his name lives on in legendary brilliance, he is still alive and working with roots.
      • Spell his name correctly and you will certain pass into the tribe of Trigonometry’s lore.
    • Right Triangles’ Sides
      • Hypotenuse
      • Adjacent side
      • Opposite side
      • The adjacent and opposite sides are relative terms, compared to the location of the angle in question.
      • The hypotenuse is always across from the right angle in a triangle.
    • Where they are found. 25°
    • Where the hypotenuse is found. hypotenuse 25°
    • Where the adjacent and opposite sides are found. hypotenuse 25° opposite Adjacent means next to or attached. This will be shown on the next slide.
    • Where the adjacent and opposite sides are found. hypotenuse 25° Adjacent side to the 25° angle. Adjacent means next to or attached. The next slide will show the relationships from the remaining angle. Opposite the 25° angle.
    • Where the adjacent and opposite sides are found relative to the third angle.. hypotenuse 65° Adjacent side Adjacent means next to or attached. The hypotenuse is still (always) across from the right angle. Opposite the 65 degree angle.
    • Ratios
      • Sine ratio:
        • Opposite over hypotenuse
      • Cosine ratio:
        • Adjacent over hypotenuse
      • Tangent ratio:
        • Opposite over Adjacent
      9 12 15 Trigonometry is based on the following relationships. x°
    • Ratios
      • Sine ratio:
        • Opposite over hypotenuse

    • Ratios
      • Sine ratio:
        • Opposite over hypotenuse
      • Cosine ratio:
        • Adjacent over hypotenuse
      9 12 15 x °
    • Ratios
      • Sine ratio:
        • Opposite over hypotenuse
      • Cosine ratio:
        • Adjacent over hypotenuse
      • Tangent ratio:
        • Opposite over Adjacent
      9 12 15 x °
    • Ratios
      • Sine ratio:
        • Opposite over hypotenuse
      • Cosine ratio:
        • Adjacent over hypotenuse
      • Tangent ratio:
        • Opposite over Adjacent
      9 12 15 Trigonometry charts are usually found at the back of math textbooks. Is there one in your book on page 668? x ° We can use these fractions as division statements and compare the resulting answers to determine the angle’s measurement.
    • What is the missing angle measurement?
