Material Type: Lesson
This resource is a collection of full hour-long lectures and accompanying notes covering most of chapters 6-10 of the OpenStax Algebra and Trigonometry book. The notes are provided in both .DOCX and .PDF format to accommodate downloading ease. Students should be encouraged to print notes and fill them out as they watch through the lectures.
Material Type: Full Course
Based on knowledge of the unit Circles, students see how sinusoids (Sine and coSine waves) get their shapes.
Material Type: Simulation
An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate how to find the perpendicular distance between a point and a line using trigonometry, given the coordinates of the point and the slope/intercept of the line. The applet has a line with sliders that adjust its slope and intercept, and a draggable point. As the line is altered or the point dragged, the distance is recalculated. The grid and coordinates can be turned on and off. The distance calculation can be turned off to permit class exercises and then turned back on the verify the answers. The applet can be printed as it appears on the screen to make handouts. The web page has a full description of the concept of the concepts, a worked example and has links to other pages relating to coordinate geometry. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com.

This book was designed as an introductory trigonometry textbook for college students with the explicit goal of reducing textbook costs.
Material Type: Textbook
Book description: This is a text on elementary trigonometry, designed for students who have completed courses in high-school algebra and geometry. Though designed for college students, it could also be used in high schools. The traditional topics are covered, but a more geometrical approach is taken than usual. Also, some numerical methods (e.g. the secant method for solving trigonometric equations) are discussed. A brief tutorial on using Gnuplot to graph trigonometric functions is included. There are 495 exercises in the book, with answers and hints to selected exercises.
