Unit 8: Analytic Trigonometry

The addition formulas

Video 1: Derivation of “the fourth” addition formula.

Video 2: Using “the fourth” addition formula: Examples

 

Reading Suggestions:

  • Carefully note the so-called cofunction identities in the shaded box on page 580. If you think about the translations of graphs, these identities should make sense.
  • Study the derivations of the remaining angle-addition formulas/identities startiWord count: 179

  • The addition formulas for the tangent function look different from the ones you’ve seen already but they have a similar effect: They take a trig function with a sum for an input and turn them into an expression only involving single inputs (no sum) to the tangent function. The examples in the text (ex 6 and 7) are similar to those covered in video 2.
