# Trigonometry

## What is Trigonometry?

Trigonometry is a mathematical topic that involves studying the relationship between the lengths and angles of triangle. Using
trigonometry, we can work out missing angles and sides of triangles. This is a skill that you will have to master when studying
maths at secondary school as it is a major topic of the curriculum.

Sin/Cos/Tan
Using sine, cosine and tangent, we can calculate missing lengths of right-angled triangles. This is one of the more basic trigonometry
skills. However, it is important that you can deal with such problems as you will meet them quite frequently.
Sine Rule
Sine rule allows us to find missing lengths and angles of certain triangles. To apply sine rule, the triangle must either know two sides
and one angle opposite to one of the sides or any two angles and one side. We recommend that you first look at the Sin/Cos/Tan
lesson before attempting sine rule.
Cosine Rule
Cosine rule is another rule that allows us to find missing lengths and angles in triangles. It can be applied when we know three sides
or two sides and an angle in-between the two sides. Cosine rule is a more complex trigonometry rule.
