Ultimate guide to Trigonometry
What you'll learn
- Perform at a very high level in regards to trigonometric topics.
- Tackle more challenging questions at grades 11 and 12, as they'll have a very strong foundation.
- Have a permanent reference point for topics that they weren't able to grasp at school.
- I cover everything from A-Z in this course so students will simply need to bring some pen and paper to each lecture and practise alongside with me.
**June 2016 update** Course has been fully redesigned from scratch and a ton of new content has been added. Hope you enjoy!
Welcome to Ultimate guide to Trigonometry. This course will have all the different topics covered between Grade 7 and 10, therefore will be a comprehensive A-Z guide. The topics are in a sequential order, gradually going up in difficulty, so you can work your way through them at your own pace depending on what you're doing at school.
What will this course have and who will benefit?
This course is going to cover all the concepts that will be covered in school from basic trigonometry topics such as Pythagoras' Theorem through to more advanced topics such as Angles of Elevation and Depression. During my time as a tutor, I've seen students really struggle to grasp the different elements of this topic, so this course can serve as a permanent reference point for you guys going forward.
If you're high school at the moment and have started doing trigonometry, then this course will be a big help because it can either complement your studies at school or serve as the official guide. I will step you through every topic systematically and run through a number of questions to really help you cement your learning.
A lot of my students are actually parents who are home schooling their kids, so if you're someone looking to brush up on your knowledge to help your kids at home, I know this course along with all my other courses will be a big help.
I go through every single topic in a step by step form so it's really easy for you to follow along. Not convinced? Then I suggest you check out the previews before you decide to enroll, to make sure my teaching style is easy to follow, I am very confident that it is. To go a step further, Udemy's 30-day money back guarantee should also make you feel at ease.
What topics will the course cover?
I'll cover the following topics in the course:
- Right-angled triangles
- Finding the hypotenuse
- Finding the other sides
- Composite shapes
- Pythagorean triples
- Pythagoras' Theorem in 3-Dimensions
- Introducing SOH, CAH and TOA
- Calculating unknown side lengths
- Calculating unknown angles
- Angles of elevation and depression
- Bearings and compass directions
- Word problems
Non right-angled triangles:
- Sine rule
- Cosine rule
- Heron's Formula
- Word problems
Trigonometry is a huge part of maths at school and it's a shame that a lot of the fundamentals are just not taught properly by teachers and then students are expected to do quite advanced operations in higher grades. That's why I created this course for you guys so you always have a reference point and furthermore always have access to me when you need help :)
**BONUS** I've also added worksheets (with answers) for each chapter to help you further test and implement your learning from the lectures.
I'm working on a number of courses like this, which cover a variety of maths topics. I'll keep you guys updated as I release them :)
Something missing in the course?
If you find I haven't covered a topic that you need at this level, let me know on the discussion board and I'll be happy to add it in :)
I can guarantee that you'll be miles ahead of the competition if you take this course seriously and best part about being able to do it all is that you can teach others as well. When you're willing to spend upwards of $50 an hour for a private tutor, it seems like a no brainer to at least give this a go, so that you have access to your very own private tutor any time you wish.
I'm good with messages and emails so if you have questions, make sure to get in touch with me. And furthermore, I want you guys to make full use of the discussion board because one of the best ways to learn is by sharing your knowledge with others. Thanks guys, really hope you enjoy.
Who this course is for:
- Students in high school doing trigonometry or Pythagoras' Theorem
- Parents who are home-schooling their children will definitely benefit from this course.
- NOT suitable for those students who already have a strong basis in Maths. Please check the curriculum below.
Hi guys, my name is Adi Chanda. I've been teaching maths for almost 10 years now to students of all ages. My experience has given me some great insights on what works for students and what doesn't. After seeing a number of students struggle with basic high school maths, I decided to upload these step by step instructional videos that take you through some of the basic maths topics.
I decided to create the 'Chanda Academy', with the hopes of one day providing access to these videos to people all around the world, who don't have access to quality education today. I want to harness the power of the internet and bring these courses to anyone and everyone so that there can be more empowered adults in the world going forward.
As for the videos themselves, I only employ methods that have been tried and tested over the years so I'm confident that these will be an invaluable tool for anyone looking for that leg up in their maths knowledge. I have plans to grow the library of videos on Chanda Academy by collaborating with experts in other fields like Science, History etc. in the future. I want it to be a one-stop shop for students worldwide.
Personally, I love teaching Maths to students of all ages so I couldn't think of a better way to make an impact on a global scale. I want to continuously create great resources for you guys, so please feel free to provide any suggestions you may have. I'm going to make up a ton of courses across a wide variety of topics at all levels. If there are specific topics you'd like me to cover definitely let me know.
What are my qualifications?
I have an Electrical Engineering degree and work as a technical product manager in a leading telco company here in Melbourne, Australia, making maths a vital part of my everyday life. I fell into teaching almost accidentally when I was 18; I loved it so much that I decided to start doing it more professionally and have been tutoring ever since. I've had some really great successes over the years but I was dissatisfied with only being able to reach students locally. Then I heard about Udemy...and well as they say the rest is history :)
I love hearing from you guys so please don't be shy and send me a message with whatever's on your mind...doesn't even have to be Maths related :)
