Thought-Process to Discover Knowledge

Welcome to nubtrek.

Books and other education websites provide "matter-of-fact" knowledge. Instead, nubtrek provides a thought-process to discover knowledge.

In each of the topic, the outline of the thought-process, for that topic, is provided for learners and educators.

### Trigonometric Values in Four Quadrants

This page explains the quadrants, various angles in different quadrants, trigonometric ratios of such angles.

click on the content to continue.. 2D coordinate plane is split into four quadrants. Four Quadrants are numbered as I, II, III, and IV as shown in the figure.

The word "quadrant" means quarter of a plane. The word "Quadrant" is derived from one fourth or quarter. Consider angle 150^@. sin 150^@ can be computed for line on unit circle at /_150^@. The projection of the line on x and y axes defines the trigonometric ratios. Similarly, sin(-30^@) can be computed for line of unit circle at -30^@ angle. The projection of the line on x and y axes defined the trigonometric ratios. The projection of line on x and y axes can be positive or negative. So the trigonometric ratios can be positive or negative.

Trigonometric Ratios can be calculated for any angle between -oo and oo and the value of ratio can be positive or negative.

Understanding Trigonometric Ratios for any Angle: Consider the line at the given angle in the unit circle. The projections on x and y axes define the trigonometric ratios. The angle can be between -oo and oo and the projections can be positive or negative. switch to interactive version
