Solving Problems in Trigonometry: Mathematical Olympiad Problems

Adam J. Wick

Welcome to our journey into the fascinating world of trigonometry, a branch of mathematics that has gratified the minds of scholars, scientists, and mathematicians for centuries. This textbook is designed to introduce you to the fundamental concepts, principles, and applications of trigonometry. It contains a comprehensive guide that will support your learning and understanding of this essential subject.

Trigonometry comes from the Greek words "trigonon" (triangle) and "metron" (measure). It is the study of the relationships between the angles and sides of triangles, particularly right-angled triangles. It is a subject that extends beyond the pure mathematics. The ability to understand and manipulate trigonometric functions is a powerful tool, opening doors to solving real-world problems and understanding the universe around us.

This textbook is structured to cater to learners at different levels, starting with the basics of trigonometry and gradually progressing to more complex concepts. Each chapter is carefully crafted to build upon the previous one, ensuring a smooth and logical progression through the material. We begin with an introduction to the definition of trigonometric functions in a right-angled triangle, followed by explorations of the unit circle, trigonometric identities and equations.

Our approach is to blend theoretical knowledge with practical application. Each chapter includes a variety of examples, and exercises that not only reinforce the concepts learned but also demonstrate the relevance of trigonometry in solving practical problems.

Whether you are a student encountering trigonometry for the first time, a teacher looking for a comprehensive resource, or someone with a general interest in mathematics, this textbook is intended to meet your needs. Our goal is to make trigonometry accessible, understandable, and, most importantly, enjoyable.

As you embark on this mathematical journey, we invite you to approach the subject with curiosity and an open mind. The study of trigonometry is not just about learning mathematical formulas; it is about developing a new way of thinking and seeing the world. We hope that this textbook will be a valuable companion on your journey, providing you with the knowledge and tools to explore the fascinating world of trigonometry.
