Geometry & Trigonometry

This topic is where we tackle the ideas of shape and space on the course. Drawing on some fundamentals, there is an emphasis on general applications of trigonometry as well as an exploration of the Volume and Surface area. then we look at the practical idea of Voronoi diagrams and their dependence on perpendicular bisectors. HL students move off in to more sophisticated ideas.

SL Right angled trigonometry

This part of trigonometry can be seen in the recurring relationships between the sides of right angles triangles. The relationship means that we can use two bits of information about a triangle to work...

SL Non right angled trigonometry

Here we take trigonometry to the next level by working with triangles that do not have a right angle. We will work on three key rules. The Sine rule, the Cosine rule and the formula for th area of a triangle....
