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.

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

##### Age 14 to 16 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?

##### Age 16 to 18 Short Challenge Level:

Can you sketch this tricky trig function?

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

##### Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

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

Sketch the graphs of y = sin x and y = tan x and some straight
lines. Prove some inequalities.

##### Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Which is larger cos(sin x) or sin(cos x) ? Does this depend on x ?

##### Age 16 to 18 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?
