  • Identify the types of special right triangles, and analyze trigonometric function values of special angles
  • Share the meaning and application of the laws of sines and cosines
  • Provide the meaning and uses of double angle formula and trigonometric identities
  • Demonstrate how to convert between radians and degrees
  • Analyze basic trigonometric identities and alternative forms of trigonometric identities

Tailor the video lessons to your studying needs by reviewing them in any sequence that works for you. The short videos average 10 minutes apiece, helping to streamline your exam preparations.

CEOE Advanced Math: Trigonometric Functions Chapter Objectives

This CEOE Advanced Math: Trigonometric Functions chapter is designed to prepare you for questions in the trigonometry and calculus subarea of exam. This subarea is one of five and constitutes about 23% of the total test. In addition to reviewing the lessons, you can take self-assessment quizzes and a chapter exam to strengthen your comprehension of trigonometric functions. Any questions you have about lesson topics can be submitted to our experts.

The computer-based assessment consists of 80 selected-response questions and 1 constructed-response assignment. It lasts four hours with an additional 15 minutes designated for a computer-based test (CBT) tutorial and nondisclosure agreement. To pass, you must earn a minimum score of 240. Doing so ensures you're able to secure the certification required to teach advanced math in Oklahoma classrooms.

Learn an easy trick to help you solve trigonometry problems, including problems with sine, cosine and inverse trig functions. At the end of this lesson, you'll know what SohCahToa means and how to use it.

Other Trigonometric Functions: Cotangent, Secant & Cosecant

2. Other Trigonometric Functions: Cotangent, Secant & Cosecant

After watching this video lesson, you will understand how the trigonometric functions cotangent, secant, and cosecant are related to the sine, cosine, and tangent functions.

Unit Circle: Memorizing the First Quadrant

3. Unit Circle: Memorizing the First Quadrant

Memorizing the unit circle can be a daunting task, but this lesson will show you a pattern to help you memorize the points, degree measures, and radian measures for the entire first quadrant.

Using Unit Circles to Relate Right Triangles to Sine & Cosine

4. Using Unit Circles to Relate Right Triangles to Sine & Cosine

The unit circle is a helpful tool for understanding trigonometric concepts. In this lesson, we'll look at right triangles on the unit circle to better grasp sine and cosine.

Practice Problems with Circular Trigonometric Functions

5. Practice Problems with Circular Trigonometric Functions

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to use the unit circle to help you find your answer to trig problems without making too many calculations. Watch and learn how you can find your angle in radians on the unit circle.

Special Right Triangles: Types and Properties

6. Special Right Triangles: Types and Properties

Not all right triangles are the same. In this lesson, we'll look at two special right triangles (30-60-90 and 45-45-90) that have unique properties to help you quickly and easily solve certain triangle problems.

Trigonometric Function Values of Special Angles

7. Trigonometric Function Values of Special Angles

After watching this video lesson, you will better understand the six trigonometric functions. You will also know what special angles there are and what the trigonometric values for these special angles are.

Law of Sines: Definition and Application

8. Law of Sines: Definition and Application

Don't get stuck trying to find missing sides or angles in a triangle. Use the Law of Sines to rescue you from any perilous triangle in which you have just a few pieces of information.

Law of Cosines: Definition and Application

9. Law of Cosines: Definition and Application

In this lesson, we'll learn how to solve problems involving three sides and one angle in a triangle. The Law of Cosines, a modification of the Pythagorean Theorem, will save the day.

The Double Angle Formula

10. The Double Angle Formula

When you encounter a doubled angle, there are special formulas that can help you handle trigonometric value. In this lesson, we'll define and practice using the double angle formulas for sine, cosine and tangent.

Converting Between Radians and Degrees

11. Converting Between Radians and Degrees

Angles can be measured in degrees or radians. This lesson will explore the difference and provide you with a simple calculation that can be used to convert degrees into radians and radians into degrees.

Trigonometric Identities: Definition & Uses
