About This Quiz & Worksheet

The values of trigonometric functions are not just doubled when the value of x doubles. This quiz and corresponding worksheet will assess your knowledge of the formulas for finding sin, cos, or tan of (2x) and how to use them.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In this assessment you will be required to use your skills to:

  • Identify the sine, cosine, and tangent double angle formulas
  • Solve practice problems to find the value of cos(2x), sin(2x), or tan(2x)

Skills Practiced

  • Problem solving - use acquired knowledge to solve double angle trigonometric practice problems
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding the double angle formulas for sine, cosine, and tangent
  • Making connections - use understanding of the double angle formulas to find the value of a given trigonometric function when you have the value of another and a range for the value of x
