Where is trigonometry used in everyday life? How do we calculate sides and angles in right-angled triangles? What do you use Pythagoras theorem for and how do we use it?
In Trigonometry and Architecture, the reader will find the answers to these questions by working on assignments which involve calculations relating to gables and rafters used in houses and other buildings.
The reader will be working on calculating the sides and angles of right-angled triangles, using the trigonometric functions of sine, cosine and tangent. In addition, the use of the unit circle in trigonometry is explained and there are assignments based on Pythagoras theorem.
The book includes explanatory videos and illustrations to support understanding.
Trigonometry and Architecture is designed to be used from age 12 through adult education as well as in interdisciplinary courses and other projects involving mathematics.
