How to Solve Visualizing Geometry Problems

1. How to Solve Visualizing Geometry Problems

A picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes drawing that picture can be like doing origami with your eyes closed. Practice translating complex problems into simple, meaningful images in this lesson.

How to Calculate the Volumes of Basic Shapes

2. How to Calculate the Volumes of Basic Shapes

Squares pegs = square holes. Triangular pegs = triangular holes. But where does a sphere go? In this lesson, review volumes of common shapes while contrasting a sphere and a cylinder - after all, they both go into the circular hole... right?

Finding Distance with the Pythagorean Theorem

3. Finding Distance with the Pythagorean Theorem

How much faster is it to cut the corners in a race around the block? In this lesson, review the Pythagorean Theorem, and figure out how to solve without a right triangle.

Trigonometry: Sine and Cosine

4. Trigonometry: Sine and Cosine

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.

Trigonometry and the Pythagorean Theorem

5. Trigonometry and the Pythagorean Theorem

Explore how the Pythagorean Theorem can be used in conjunction with trigonometric functions. In this lesson, take an inverse trigonometric function, and define all three sides of a right triangle.

Arccosine: Definition & Overview

6. Arccosine: Definition & Overview

Arccosine is an inverse trigonometric function. It happens to be the inverse of cosine and can be used to solve more complicated right angle problems. This lesson will define the arccosine in more detail and give some example problems. Be prepared for a quiz at the end of the lesson.

Arcsine: Definition & Overview

7. Arcsine: Definition & Overview

The arcsine is the inverse operation of the sine function. This lesson will give a definition of the arcsine and provide examples of how it can be used to find the measure of an angle. A quiz following the lesson will help cement what you've learned.

Arctan: Definition, Function & Formula

8. Arctan: Definition, Function & Formula

The arctan, or arctangent, is the inverse function of the tangent function. This lesson will define the arctan, describe its function, and take you through some examples.
