The word trigonometry is a 16th-century Latin derivative from the Greek words for triangle (*trigōnon*) and measure (*metron). *Trigonometry is a branch of mathematics that studies relationships between the sides and angles of triangles. Have you ever played the game, Mario? When you see him so smoothly glide over the road blocks his path is slightly curved. Trigonometry is used to help Mario jump over these obstacles. In construction we need trigonometry to make walls parallel and perpendicular, calculate roof inclination; and the height of the building. In criminology, trigonometry can help to calculate a projectile’s trajectory, or to estimate what might have caused a collision in a car accident. The sine and cosine functions are fundamental to the theory of periodic functions, those that describe sound and light waves. Trigonometry skills play an important role in a wide variety of careers, including architecture, music, video games, digital imagery and engineering.
