A must series for those seriously looking for a strong foundation for their trig learning. It begins with the Pythagorean Theorem and the primary trig ratios sine, cosine and tangent and finding unknown sides and angles in right triangles and then progresses to solving word problems involving the primary trig ratios. The series covers the reciprocal trig ratios (secant, cosecant, cotangent) and exact value special angles.

Clear & precise, brought into clarity & understanding what i could not gain from the Text book! Well done!

The teacher person has a monotone voice but following along with or without sound is actually very easy. So if you need trig practice I found it helpful.

Below are the descriptions for each of the lessons included in the series:
