Help is needed!

Our school just started trigonometry, and I'm dying! Any help would be good, but I particularly suck at trigonometric functions... Thanks!

BTW: I've tried the problems on it in its chapter on brilliant, but I just began.

First of all, don't die - you won't learn trigonometry that way.

Jokes apart.......: 1. What seems difficult now may seem much easier later on.

  1. Effort does make a difference. Come back to the same concept after taking a break (by studying a different subject / topic).

  2. Trigonometry (and maths in general) build up on topics. If you find the earlier chapters difficult, practice more - or check whether you have understood the concepts properly. Once you have, then do more challenging problems from the earlier chapters.

  3. Try a couple of free online resources: http://mecmath.net/trig/ http://stitz-zeager.com/szct07042013.pdf These are not easy, but they are not dumbed down either. Doing exercies / concepts from more than one source can help you because you will learn the concepts in a different way and make connections.

  4. Trig is important for later stuff (connected with physics, complex numbers, and lots of engineering and other stuff) - so don't leave it altogether. Keep doing bits and pieces till you get it.

Is your trig fine now?

Yeah, thanks.... now we've started derivatives, and I feel even more lost though XD

How old are you? I started learning calculus a year ago when I was 12. I spent a whole year calculating limits and derivatives, and now I'm doing integration. It's hard at first, calculating limits, but seeing as you're a calculus level 2, you're doing well.

@Krishna Venkatraman You're 13?

Finn C - 1 week, 3 days ago

@Finn C Why do they start derivatives so early in your school? Is it something in Singapore? In Australia they start calculus at grade 11. What grade are you in?

@Finn C Nope. Australians are less active than you think, even though we are pretty fit. Australians are becoming more and more like Americans...
