Our instructors have created lively video lessons, about five minutes long on average, that help you prepare for the NES Math exam. You can track your study progress through the Dashboard feature, and use the message board to contact the instructors if you have questions. In addition to the online features, we provide a sheet of quiz questions that you can print out and use for study when you don't have Internet access.

NES Math: Solving Trigonometric Equations Chapter Objectives

Passing the NES Math exam is one of the requirements for obtaining a teaching certificate in the subject in several states. The exam consists of 150 multiple-choice questions, divided into five content domains. Material covered in this chapter's lessons is represented in the exam's Trigonometry and Calculus content domain, which accounts for 19% of the exam's total scoring.

Because they are computer-delivered and multiple-choice, the lesson quizzes and the chapter tests in this study guide offer good practice in answering questions like you'll find on the NES Math exam. Our tests also show you where you need additional study, and you can use the links in the quiz answer keys to jump back to specific points in the lesson for review.

How to Solve Trigonometric Equations for X

1. How to Solve Trigonometric Equations for X

Trigonometric functions can be simplified using their inverses and their angles can be solved within their restricted domains. Learn how to solve trigonometric equations for x using inverse operations and based on trigonometric restrictions.

Solve Trigonometric Equations with Identities & Inverses

2. Solve Trigonometric Equations with Identities & Inverses

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to solve trigonometric equations by making use of trigonometric identities and inverses. Learn the steps to take to get to your solution.

Properties of Inverse Trigonometric Functions

3. Properties of Inverse Trigonometric Functions

After watching this video lesson, you will understand why our inverse trigonometric functions have a limited range. Learn what this does. Also learn the notation for these functions.

Solving Trigonometric Equations with Restricted Domains

4. Solving Trigonometric Equations with Restricted Domains

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to find the right answer for a trigonometric equation with a restricted domain. Learn what it means to have a restricted domain and what you need to do to find your answer.

Solving Trigonometric Equations with Infinite Solutions

5. Solving Trigonometric Equations with Infinite Solutions

Watch this video lesson and you will learn that all trigonometric equations have an infinite set of solutions. But you will also see that we can still go ahead and solve our equations and find concrete answers.
