# Ch 4: Geometry and Trigonometry

Watch informative and engaging calculus video lessons with quizzes about geometry and trigonometry. Learn what role geometry and trigonometry play in calculus.

## Geometry and Trigonometry in Calculus

Like many academic pursuits, math is a subject where what you learn today is based on what you learned yesterday. Rarely does your knowledge of the topic stand alone; you can't take a class in advanced math before you learn how to add, subtract, multiply and divide. With that in mind, these lessons explain how basic math skills play a part in advanced mathematical concepts - and this course will help you to brush up on those skills.

These lessons will cover how to solve by visualizing problems; you'll see how to apply graphical and hands-on approaches to questions as you proceed through this course. You'll also cover some basic volume calculations by going over how to calculate the volume of spheres, pyramids and other basic shapes.

From here, the lessons will lead you into discussion of an important piece of mathematical knowledge - the Pythagorean Theorem. You'll study how to apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between points and you'll learn to apply this theorem to both simple and advanced concepts.

As the lessons continue, you'll look at basic trigonometric functions like sine and cosine. You'll see how to graph them and how to describe them on right triangles.

The main point of these lessons is to be sure that you remember the important basics that you probably learned in past mathematics courses. You'll look over some key concepts that will be used in advanced level math and can prepare you to move forward in your studies.
