Overview

Pythagoras' Theorem and Trigonometry are essential techniques used to solve problems with right-angled triangles. In this learning program, students become competent in solving questions using the theory and processes of trigonometry with right-angled triangles. Students recall and apply the appropriate rules of Trigonometry to find unknown sides and angles, including applications of bearings and 3D trigonometry to problems.
