Abstract

This is the bare minimum of trigonometry you need to be successful in the first semester of

calculus.

1 Definitions

1. Radian measure. Suppose that an angle has vertex 0. The radian measure of this angle

is the length of the arc in intercepts in a circle of radius R centered at 0 divided by R.

Radians are dimensionless.

2. Sine, Cosine and Tangent. Consider the circle of radius 1 centered at (0, 0), which has

equation x2 + y 2 = 1. Suppose that if we move counter-clockwise a distance a along the

circle from (0, 0) to (c, s). We then say that the sine of a, written sin(a), is s, the cosine of

a, writen cos(a), is c, and the tangent of a, written tan(a), is the slope of the line passing

through (0, 0) and (c, s). For negative values of a we move |a| in the clockwise direction

from (0, 0) and apply the same principle. If we end up at (c, s) then we have sin(a) = s,

cos(a) = c and tan(a) is the slope of the line joining (0, 0) and (c, s).

2 Functional Properties

1. Functional properties of sine. The domain of sine is all real numbers, and the range is

[−1, 1]. The sine function is periodic with period 2π, that is sin(a + 2π) = sin(a) for all

real numbers a, and if sin(a + p) = sin(a) for all real numbers a, then p = 2πk for some

integer k.

2. Functional properties of cosine. The domain of cosine is all real numbers, and the range is

[−1, 1]. The cosine function is periodic with period 2π, that is cos(a + 2π) = cos(a) for all

real numbers a, and if cos(a + p) = cos(a) for all real numbers a, then p = 2πk for some

integer k.

3. Functional properties of tangent. The domain of tangent is all real except those that can

be written in the form (π/2)+kπ for some integer k, and the range is all real numbers. The

cosine function is periodic with period π, that is tan(a + π) = tan(a) for all real numbers a

in the domain of tangent, and if tan(a + p) = tan(a) for all real numbers a in the domain

of tangent, then p = πk for some integer k.

4. Principle values:

a sin(a) cos(a) tan(a)

0 0 √ 1 0√

π/6 √1/2 √3/2 1/ 3

π/4 √2/2 2/2 √1

π/3 3/2 1/2 3

π/2 1 0 undefined

3 Identities

1. The six basic identities:

sin(a)

tan(a) =

cos(a)

(sin(a))2 + (cos(a))2 = 1

sin(−a) = − sin(a)

cos(−a) = cos(a)

sin(a + b) = sin(a) cos(b) + sin(b) cos(a)

cos(a + b) = cos(a) cos(b) − sin(a) sin(b)

2. The Law of Cosines: In any triangle, if the sides measure A, B and C and the measure of

the angle opposite the side of length A is a, then

A2 = B 2 + C 2 − 2BC cos(a).

1. Cosecant. The cosecant function, denoted by csc, is defined by csc(a) = 1/ sin(a), and is

defined for all a such that sin(a) 6= 0.

2. Secant. The secant function, denoted by sec, is defined by sec(a) = 1 cos(a) and is defined

for all a such that cos(a) 6= 0.

3. Cotangent. The cotangent function, denoted by cot, is defined by cot(a) = cos(a)/sin(a),

and is defined for all a such that sin(a) 6= 0.

5 Inverse Functions

1. Arccosine. The arccosine function, denoted by arccos, has domain [−1, 1], range [0, π] and

is defined by arccos(x) = a if cos(a) = x. Therefore cos(arccos(x)) = x for x ∈ [−1, 1] and

arccos(cos(a)) = a if a ∈ [0, π].

2. Arcsine. The arcsine function, denoted by arcsin, has domain [−1, 1], range [−π/2, π/2]

and is defined by arcsin(x) = a if sin(a) = x. Therefore sin(arcsin(x)) = x for x ∈ [−1, 1]

and arcsin((sin(a)) = a if a ∈ [−pi/2, π/2].

3. Arctangent. The arctangent function, denoted by arctan, has domain all the real num-

bers, range (−π/2, π/2) and is defined by arctan(x) = a if tan(a) = x. Therefore

tan(arctan(x)) = x for any real number x while arctan(tan(a)) = a if a ∈ (−π/2, π/2).

4. Arcsecant. The arcsecant function, denoted by arcsec is defined by arcsec(x) = arccos(1/x).

Its domain is (−∞, −1] ∪ [1, ∞) and its range is [0, π/2) ∪ (π/2, π].

5. Arccosecant. The arccosecant function, denoted by arccsc is defined by arccsc(x) =

arcsin(1/x). Its domain is (−∞, −1] ∪ [1, ∞) and its range is [−π/2, 0) ∪ (0, π/2].

6. Arccotangent. The arccotangent function, denoted by arccot, has domain all real numbers,

range (0, π) and arccot(x) = a if cot(a) = x. Therefore cot(arccot(x)) = x for every real

number, while arccot(cot(a)) = a if a ∈ (0, π).
