2 trigonometric ratios conglomerate keep

  1. 1. Trigonometric Ratios  MM2G2. Students will define and apply sine, cosine, and tangent ratios to right triangles.  MM2G2a: Discover the relationship of the trigonometric ratios for similar triangles.
  2. 2. Trigonometric Ratios  MM2G2b: Explain the relationship between the trigonometric ratios of complementary angles.  MM2G2c: Solve application problems using the trigonometric ratios.
  3. 3. The following slides have been come from the following sources: www.mccd.edu/faculty/bruleym/.../trigonome http://ux.brookdalecc.edu/fac/cos/lsch melz/Math%20151/ www.scarsdaleschools.k12.ny.us / 202120915213753693/lib/…/trig.ppt Emily Freeman McEachern High School
  4. 4. Warm Up Put 4 30-60-90 triangles with the following sides listed and have students determine the missing lengths. 30 S 5 2 7√3 √2 90 H 10 4 14√3 2√2 60 L 5√3 2√3 21 √6
  5. 5. Trigonometric Ratios  Talk about adjacent and opposite sides: have the kids line up on the wall and pass something from one to another adjacent and opposite in the room.  Make a string triangle and talk about adjacent and opposite some more
  6. 6. Trigonometric Ratios  Determine the ratios of all the triangles on the board and realize there are only 3 (6?) different ratios.  Talk about what it means for shapes to be similar.  Make more similar right triangles on dot paper, measure the sides, and calculate the ratios.
  7. 7. Trigonometric Ratios  Try to have the students measure the angles of the triangles they made on dot paper.  Do a Geosketch of all possible triangles and show the ratios are the same for similar triangles  Finally: name the ratios
  8. 8. Warm Up  Pick up a sheet of dot paper, a ruler, and protractor from the front desk.  Draw two triangles, one with sides 3 & 4, and the other with sides 12 & 5  Calculate the hypotenuse  Calculate sine, cosine, and tangent for the acute angles.  Measure the acute angles to the nearest degree.  Show how to find sine, cosine, & tangent of angles in the calculator
  9. 9. Yesterday  We learned the sine, cosine, and tangent of the same angle of similar triangles are the same  Another way of saying this is: The sine, cosine, tangent of congruent angles are the same

  11. 11. Trigonometric Ratios are based on the Concept of Similar Triangles!
  12. 12. All 45º- 45º- 90º Triangles are Similar! 45 º 2 2 22 45 º 1 1 2 45 º 1 2 1 2 1

  15. 15. hypotenuse leg leg In a right triangle, the shorter sides are called legs and the longest side (which is the one opposite the right angle) is called the hypotenuse a b c We’ll label them a, b, and c and the angles α and β. Trigonometric functions are defined by taking the ratios of sides of a right triangle. β α First let’s look at the three basic functions. SINE COSINE TANGENT They are abbreviated using their first 3 letters c a == hypotenuse opposite sinα opposite c b == hypotenuse adjacent cosα adjacent b a == adjacent opposite tanα
  16. 16. The Trigonometric Functions SINE COSINE TANGENT
  17. 17. SINE Prounounced “sign”
  18. 18. Prounounced “co-sign” COSINE
  19. 19. Prounounced “tan-gent” TANGENT
  20. 20. Pronounced “theta” Greek Letter θ Represents an unknown angle
  21. 21. Pronounced “alpha” Greek Letter α Represents an unknown angle
  22. 22. Pronounced “Beta” Greek Letter β Represents an unknown angle
  23. 23. θ opposite hypotenuse Sin Opp Hyp = adjacent Cos Adj Hyp = Tan Opp Adj = hypotenuse opposite adjacent
  24. 24. We could ask for the trig functions of the angle β by using the definitions. a b c You MUST get them memorized. Here is a mnemonic to help you. β α The sacred Jedi word: SOHCAHTOA c b == hypotenuse opposite sin β adjacent cos hypotenuse a c β = = opposite tan adjacent b a β = = opposite adjacent SOHCAHTOA
  25. 25. It is important to note WHICH angle you are talking about when you find the value of the trig function. a b c α Let's try finding some trig functions with some numbers. Remember that sides of a right triangle follow the Pythagorean Theorem so 222 cba =+ Let's choose: 222 543 =+3 4 5 sin α = Use a mnemonic and figure out which sides of the triangle you need for sine. h o 5 3 = opposite hypotenuse tan β = a o 3 4 = opposite adjacent Use a mnemonic and figure out which sides of the triangle you need for tangent. β
  26. 26. You need to pay attention to which angle you want the trig function of so you know which side is opposite that angle and which side is adjacent to it. The hypotenuse will always be the longest side and will always be opposite the right angle. α This method only applies if you have a right triangle and is only for the acute angles (angles less than 90°) in the triangle. 3 4 5 β Oh, I'm acute! So am I!
  27. 27. We need a way to remember all of these ratios…
