```“TRIGONOMETRY”
Derived from Greek language
Means “measurement of triangles”
Initially, trig dealt with relationships among the
sides and angles of triangles and was used in
In 17th century, a different perspective arose:
trig relationships were viewed as functions of
real numbers with applications including
rotations and vibrations
ANGLE
Determined by rotating a ray about its endpoint
Can be labeled with uppercase letters (A, B, or C) or
with Greek letters (a, b, or q)
ANGLE
When viewed with respect
to the coordinate system,
an angle is in standard
position if
 Its vertex is at the origin
 Its initial side lies along the
positive x-axis

COTERMINAL ANGLES
Two or more angles with the same initial and terminal
side, but possibly different rotations
Every angle has infinitely many coterminal angles.

LENGTH OF A CIRCULAR ARC
Let r be the radius of a circle and q the nonnegative
radian measure of a central angle of the circle. The
length of the arc intercepted by the central angle is
