TermDefinition
Pythagorean triple A set of three positive integers a, b, and c that satisfy the equation c2=a2+b2.
Trigonometric ratio A ratio of the lengths of two sides in a right triangle.
Tangent A trigonometric ratio, abbreviated as tan. For a right triangle ABC, the tangent of the acute angle A is tan A = length of leg opposite <A over length of leg adjacent to <A = BC over AC.
Sine A trigonometric ratio, abbreviated as sin. For a right triangle ABC, the sine of the acute angle A is
Cosine The trigonometric function that is equal to the ratio of the side adjacent to an acute angle (in a right-angled triangle) to the hypotenuse.
Angle of elevation When you look up at an object, the angle that your line of sight makes with a line drawn horizontally.
Angle of depression When you look down at an object, the angle that your line of sight makes with a line drawn horizontally
Solve a right triangle To find the measures of all of the sides and angles of a right triangle.
Inverse tangent An inverse trigonometric ratio, abbreviated as tan -1. For acute angle A, if tan A=x, then tan -1 x = m<A.
Inverse sine An inverse trigonometric ratio, abbreviated as sin -1. For acute angle A, if sin A=y, then sin -1 = m<A.
Inverse cosine An inverse trigonometric ratio, abbreviated as cos -1. For acute angle A, if cos A=z, then cos -1 = m<A.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
