Tangled Trig Graphs

Age 16 to 18
Challenge Level

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

Taking Trigonometry Series-ly

Age 16 to 18
Challenge Level

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

Sine and Cosine

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?

Squareness

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?

Loch Ness

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

Trigger

Age 16 to 18 Short
Challenge Level

Can you sketch this tricky trig function?

Spherical Triangles on Very Big Spheres

Age 16 to 18
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.

Building Approximations for Sin(x)

Age 16 to 18
Challenge Level

Build up the concept of the Taylor series

What Do Functions Do for Tiny X?

Age 16 to 18
Challenge Level

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

Climbing

Age 16 to 18
Challenge Level

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

Small Steps

Age 16 to 18
Challenge Level

Two problems about infinite processes where smaller and smaller steps are taken and you have to discover what happens in the limit.

After Thought

Age 16 to 18
Challenge Level

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

Degree Ceremony

Age 16 to 18
Challenge Level

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