Similarity

Similarity,In what follows, we’ll see that many—if not most—of our results shall rely on the proportionality of sides in similar triangles. A convenient statement is as follows. Similarity, Given the similar triangles ΔABC ∼ ΔA’BC’,We have that, Conversely, if then triangles ΔABC ∼ ΔA’BC’ are similar. Proof Note first that ΔAA’C’ and ΔCA’C’ clearly have …

Trigonometric Identities

A Trigonometric identity or trig identity is an identity that contains the trigonometric functions sine(sin), cosine(cos), tangent(tan), cotangent(cot), secant(sec), or cosecant(csc). Trigonometric identities can use to: Simplify trigonometric expressions. Solve trigonometric equations. Prove that one trigonometric expression is equivalent to another so that we can replace the first expression by the second expression. The following …

Role of Euclidean Geometry in High-School Mathematics

Role of Euclidean Geometry in High-School Mathematics

If only because in one’s “further” studies of mathematics, the results (i.e., theorems) of euclidean geometry appear only infrequently, this subject has come under frequent scrutiny, especially over the past 50 years, and at various stages, its very inclusion during a high-school mathematics curriculum has even been challenged. However, as long as we still think …
