Sample from Trigonometry 2 – Apprenticeship and Workplace Mathematics 10

Imagine the excitement of carrying the Olympic torch! More than 12 000 torchbearers from all parts of Canada carried the flame during the 106-day relay that started in Victoria, British Columbia. The torch route went through all of the territories and provinces of Canada, and ended in Vancouver, the host city of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

Wayne Gretzky had the honour of lighting the outdoor cauldron—what a spectacular event! Take a close look at that cauldron. Its design incorporates many of angles and triangles! The Winter Olympics required many new facilities, and these buildings and structures were designed by architects who applied mathematics.

One of their mathematical tools is trigonometry.

In this section you will:
• apply similarity to right triangles.
• generalize patterns from similar right triangles.
• apply the trigonometric ratios tangent, sine, and cosine to solve problems.
