In Acellus Trigonometry, students learn about the relationships between the sides and the angles of triangles and how to make calculations based on them using trigonometric functions. Acellus Trigonometry is taught by award-winning Acellus Master Teacher, Patrick Mara.
Acellus Trigonometry is A-G Approved through the University of California.
Sample Lesson - Sector Area
Course Objectives & Student Learning OutcomesUpon successful completion of Acellus Trigonometry, students will have attained a mastery of the trig foundational skills necessary for success in higher mathematics. Students will have mastered the unit circle, memorizing the coordinates of various key angles to quickly determine the lengths of the sides of common right triangles. Students will know how to use the sine, cosine, tangent and their reciprocal and inverse functions to determine unknown sides and angles of right triangles. They know what the graphs of these functions look like and how to translate them. They will know how to calculate arc length and sector area. Students will be confident using various trig formulas, such as the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines, as well as the area formula for triangles. They also are familiar with and know how to use the trig identities. Students are familiar working with vectors and know how to calculate magnitude and direction from horizontal and vertical components and vice versa. They also know how to add vectors both geometrically and algebraically. Students know how to solve trig equations. Throughout this course, students gain experience using trigonometry to solve problems based on real-world situations.
