Course description

This course will teach you all of the fundamentals of trigonometry, starting from square one: the basic idea of similar right triangles. In the first sequences in this course, you'll learn the definitions of the most common trigonometric functions from both a geometric and algebraic perspective.

In this course, you'll master trigonometry by solving challenging problems and interacting with animated graphs, not by relying on rote memorization. Additionally, you'll learn how to apply trigonometry in the contexts of measuring and manipulating sound waves and creating complex, artistic designs using polar graphing.
