Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn about the trig functions sine, cosine, and tangent and their relationships with angle sizes and proportion in sides of a right triangle. These trigonometric values will be shown as ratios, which are primarily fractions. The lesson provides short, general examples, with the intention of a more detailed review in a subsequent lesson. You will also be introduced to the calculator and the importance of being in the correct mode when working with trig functions.

Lesson Description:

Learn about sin, cos, and tan ratios in Geometry.
