Picture of Trigonometry 1.2. - Unit Circle

This lecture introduces a concept of a unit circle on a coordinate plane.

Using this concept of a unit circle, we can define trigonometric functions SIN and COS for any angles, positive and negative, not limited to any range, measured in degrees or radians.

From functions SIN and COS we define all other trigonometric functions - TAN, COT, SEC and CSC.

We also demonstrate an equivalence of this definition of SIN and COS to a definition of these functions for angles in a right triangle as a ratio between its sides.

Section 7. Trigonometry and Complex Numbers

60 Trigonometry 7.1. - Complex Numbers 26:55

Picture of Trigonometry 7.1. - Complex Numbers

 

The purpose of this lesson is not only to describe the expansion of a set of real numbers towards complex ones, but to justify the necessity of this and to introduce the complex numbers in a more rigorous fashion than traditionally presented to many students.

We will follow the evolution of a concept of number from natural to integer, to rational, to real and explain the necessity of this evolution in a quest for symmetry and harmony of our theory. That same quest will lead us to introduction of complex numbers.

Basic definitions that are used to create a new set of numbers are presented in details, as well as main operations with complex numbers and laws that direct these operations.

 

61 Trigonometry 7.2. - Advanced Complex Numbers 27:50

Picture of Trigonometry 7.2. - Advanced Complex Numbers

This lesson is a more formal, abstract, more rigorous definition of complex numbers and operations with them.
The need for more rigorous definition of complex numbers lies in a simple fact that, defining any operation on two objects, we have to properly define a set these objects and the result of operation on them belong to.
If r is a real number and i is an imaginary unit, the square of which equals to -1 and is not a real number, what is the set they both belong to?
How to perform addition or multiplication on them?
What set the result of operation on them belongs to?

These and other questions can be answered by rigorously constructing a new set of complex numbers that properly represents all real numbers, all imaginary numbers and the results of operations on them. This is a subject of this lesson.

Welcome to Advanced Trigonometry!

Learning is not just accumulation of information. Educational process, especially for such a subject as Mathematics, is an active two-way street. The teacher provides you with information and expects something in return – your full attention, participation, and effort, without which anything you get will soon be forgotten without any traces.
In return for your efforts you will be rewarded with Knowledge and develop your abilities to approach many new problems in a creative, analytical way, which leads to success in any field you will be working.

 

WHAT'S IN THE COURSE

This course of Advanced Trigonometry contains:

8 major sections dedicated to broad spectrum of topics of Trigonometry

30 video-recorded theoretical lessons distributed among these sections (up to 30 min each)

28 multiple choice students' tests with detail explanation of correct answers available as parents' resources

19 video-recorded practical exercise lessons that offer problems and their review (up to 30 min each)

Overall, more than 20 hours of video-recorded lessons!

 

IMPORTANT NOTES

Resources, available for supervising parents, contain answers to all multiple choice tests with detail reasoning why these answers are correct. These tests are very important and we encourage all parents to make sure that the answers provided by students are not only correct, but have logical reasoning behind them similar to considerations offered in answers provided in the resources.

Practical exercises are presented as two separate items each - a description and an explanation and analysis in the following lesson. They are intended for students to apply their skills and knowledge to solve problems or prove theorems by themselves and then check it against the explanation provided in the course. In some cases these exercises contain answers in the description itself to check the results. It is important to go through these answers prior to watching the subsequent lesson with full analysis and explanation. 

 

COURSE GOAL

The primary goal of this course is to present the students with rigorous definitions, properties, relationships and dependencies among different objects studied in Trigonometry.

Perhaps the most interesting part of this course is the kind of problems offered as tests or exercises. They require not only factual knowledge of the information provided in theoretical lectures, but also certain degree of creativity, ingenuity and analytical thinking and, as such, are intended to develop these skills, which will be useful in any future profession. Development of these qualities in students is an extremely important goal of this course.

 

TARGET AUDIENCE

The course is intended for high school level students who are either involved in home schooling or are just interested in deepening their mathematical knowledge as a tool to develop their creativity, logic, analytical thinking and, arguably, general intelligence.

Those students who successfully complete this course will excel not only in Trigonometry, but in other mathematical topics and all aspects of their lives that involve deep understanding, thinking and decision making.


COURSE REQUIREMENTS AND PREREQUISITES

Strong algebraical and geometrical skills are assumed for students studying Trigonometry. In addition, knowledge of complex numbers, limits and derivatives would be useful. For those not familiar with the concepts of complex numbers, limits and derivatives the course contains introductory lectures, which introduces these concepts to a level sufficient to understand their application to Trigonometry.

My name is Zinovy (Zor). I am a mathematician by education, a computer programmer and a financial specialist by profession and a teacher by inspiration. I was born and educated in the Soviet Union, graduated as a mathematician from a prestigious Moscow University at the time when its math school was one of the best in the world. Though, I consider my high school years to be at least as important because of a brilliant math teacher who established a solid foundation to my future math study. After graduation from university I was working in the computer industry developing software for statistical applications. At age of 30 I with my family immigrated to the United States and continued my career in New York as a computer specialist primarily in the financial industry, working for the best in the world financial information provider and then for the largest asset management company in the world. I think, many of our high schools do not provide an adequate level of knowledge in such an important subject as Mathematics and Physics. I am sure, many young students, especially those studying these subjects at home, would welcome an opportunity to deepen their knowledge, while teachers might be benefited from a course concentrated on rigorous presentation of ideas, logic and methods. After retirement I have decided to dedicate my efforts to education to transfer my knowledge of Mathematics and system of study to those young students who appreciate rigorousness, logic and creativity and cannot get it in schools for any reason. When approached by Lernsys, I realized the potential of cooperation between this company, serving as a conduit of knowledge, and a provider of quality education to homeschoolers. I hope that the high quality of educational material I can provide, combined with publishing capabilities of Lernsys, allowing it to distribute these materials to a broad audience of students, will open a new page in the system of education.
