Spherical Triangles on Very Big Spheres

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Shows that Pythagoras for Spherical Triangles reduces to Pythagoras's Theorem in the plane when the triangles are small relative to the radius of the sphere.

Taking Trigonometry Series-ly

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Look at the advanced way of viewing sin and cos through their power series.

Building Approximations for Sin(x)

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Build up the concept of the Taylor series

Trig-trig

Stage: 4 and 5 Challenge Level:

Explore the properties of combinations of trig functions in this open investigation.

What Do Functions Do for Tiny X?

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Looking at small values of functions. Motivating the existence of the Taylor expansion.

Sine and Cosine

Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

The sine of an angle is equal to the cosine of its complement. Can you explain why and does this rule extend beyond angles of 90 degrees?

Degree Ceremony

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

What does Pythagoras' Theorem tell you about these angles: 90°, (45+x)° and (45-x)° in a triangle?

Tangled Trig Graphs

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Can you work out the equations of the trig graphs I used to make my pattern?

Loch Ness

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Draw graphs of the sine and modulus functions and explain the humps.

Squareness

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

The family of graphs of x^n + y^n =1 (for even n) includes the circle. Why do the graphs look more and more square as n increases?
