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.

Read in the blogs more about the unique learning experience at nubtrek.

User Guide

To make best use of nubtrek, understand what is available.

nubtrek is designed to explain mathematics and science for young readers. Every topic consists of four sections.

nub,

trek,

jogger,

exercise.

User Guide

nub is the simple explanation of the concept.

This captures the small-core of concept in simple-plain English. The objective is to make the learner to think about.

User Guide

trek is the step by step exploration of the concept.

Trekking is bit hard, requiring one to sweat and exert. The benefits of taking the steps are awesome. In the trek, concepts are explained with exploratory questions and your thinking process is honed step by step.

User Guide

jogger provides the complete mathematical definition of the concepts.

This captures the essence of learning and helps one to review at a later point. The reference is available in pdf document too. This is designed to be viewed in a smart-phone screen.

User Guide

exercise provides practice problems to become fluent in the concepts.

This part does not have much content as of now. Over time, when resources are available, this section will have curated and exam-prep focused questions to test your knowledge.

For the triangle given in figure, What is sin theta?

• (OP)/(OQ)
• (PQ)/(OQ)

The answer is '(PQ)/(OQ)'

For the triangle given in figure, What is cos theta?

• (OP)/(OQ)
• (PQ)/(OQ)

The answer is '(OP)/(OQ)'

For the triangle given in figure, which of the following represents Pythagoras theorem?

• OP^2 + PQ^2 =OQ^2
• ((OP)/(OQ))^2 + ((PQ)/(OQ))^2 = 1
• Both the above

The answer is 'both the above'.

For a right angled triangle, the Pythagoras theorem is given as

(text(opposite))^2 + (text(adjacent))^2 = (text(hypotenuse))^2

If this equation is divided by (text(hypotenuse))^2 ; which of the following is the result?

• ((OP)/(OQ))^2 + ((PQ)/(OQ))^2 = 1
• sin^2 theta + cos^2 theta = 1
• Both the above

The answer is 'both the above'.

Pythagorean Theorem states that in a right angled triangle, square of hypotenuse equals sum of squares of two arms. The trigonometric ratios are defined for right angled triangles. The relationships between trigonometric ratios per Pythagorean theorem are called "Pythagorean Trigonometric Identities".

What does 'identity' mean?

• It is just a name.
• equality of two expressions; left and right hand side are identical

Answer is 'equality of two expressions; left and right hand side are identical'

For a right angled triangle,

sin^2 theta + cos^2 theta = 1

If this equation is divided by sin^2 theta ; which of the following is the result?

• cannot divide this equation by sin^2 theta
• 1+cot^2 theta = csc^2 theta

The answer is '1+cot^2 theta = csc^2 theta'.

For a right angled triangle,

sin^2 theta + cos^2 theta = 1

If this equation is divided by cos^2 theta ; which of the following is the result?

• cannot divide this equation by cos^2 theta
• tan^2 theta + 1 = sec^2 theta

The answer is 'tan^2 theta + 1 = sec^2 theta'.
