Sticks and Shadows

Follow this link to answer the question: "What is Trigonometry?" You'll also find out what sticks and shadows have to do with trigonometry.

Read through the site pages starting with Sticks and Shadows (Part 1) through to sine and cosine Do "the Wave". Each page has a really cool java applet to help you visualize and understand what we were talking about in class today. You can go farther if you like as we'll be covering that material eventually; if not in this class then in Pre-Cal 40S. ;-)

Have fun with it!

To be honest... I kind of learned something from that exercise. It's like today’s whole math class built into one program. Hahahah. It's was interesting. I had fun pulling the circle thing around, around, around... Etc. I like circles. Hahaha. I spent 5 minuites doing that. Hahaha. Spiny. Hahahah.
