Chapter sixfinishes off our exploration of trigonometry with some final thoughts on some very useful applications. Some of this will be review but the final section is quite challenging. We begin by demonstrating how to solve any triangles by using the Law of Sines and Law of Cosines. We will also learn a couple of unique methods to find the area of triangles without knowing the altitude. Then we will examine vectors and some of the most common vector operations. And we will finish by covering complex numbers in trig form and how we can use DeMoivre’s Theorem to find powers and roots of complex numbers. Please ask questions regularly in class or stop by to see me or go to the MathResourceCenter in room C117 for extra help.
