### Warm Up

• How’d the test go? Better? Worse?

• Did you do anything different to study for this test?

• How many times have you attended tutoring?

• Did you do every homework assignment for the unit?

## Circular Trig

### Basic Terms

• An angle is formed by rotating a ray around its endpoint.

• The ray in its starting position is called the initial side of the angle.

• The ray’s location after the rotation is the terminal side of the angle.

terminal side

initial side

### Basic Terms

• Positive angle: The rotation of the terminal side of an angle counterclockwise.

• Negative angle: The rotation of the terminal side is clockwise.

### Example 1: Draw each angle.

A complete rotation of a ray results in an angle measuring 360.

We don’t have to stop there!

• 137 is coterminal with 497. They have the same terminal angle! We can keep adding or subtracting 360 to get more coterminal angles.

137 more

360

497 altogether!

### Example 2: For the angles below, find the smallest positive coterminal angle.

(Add or subtract 360 as may times as needed to obtain an angle with measure greater than 0 but less than 360.)

a) 1115 b) 187

a) 1115° - 360° - 360° - 360° = 35°

b) 187 + 360 = 173

### What’s a radian?

• You’re used to thinking of a circle in terms of degrees: 360° is the whole circle. 180° is half the circle, etc...

• Radian measure is just a different way of talking about the circle.

• Just as we can measure a football field in yards or feet--we can measure a circle in degrees or in radians!

Think about what the word radian sounds like… it sounds like “radius,” right? It turns out that a radian has a close relationship to the radius of a circle.

Example 3: Convert each degree measure to radians.

(a) 30° (b) 120° (c)  60° (d) 270° (e) 104 °

Example 3: Convert each radianmeasure to degrees.

Write these down in your notes! If you memorize them, it will make converting from radians to degrees (and vice versa) much easier!
