MAE 184 Optional Project – Unit Circle sin θ. Then from the pathagoreum theorem, we can readily see that sin2x + cos2x = 12, or 1. DC = tan θ. Using the pathagoreum theorem , what does OD equal. What trigonometric function does this represent? The unit circle, that is a circle whose radius is 1, as shown here is a very helpful tool in understanding basic trigonometry. For example if the radius of the circle below is 1, then OC = 1 and OA = 1. If <AOB below is θ, OB is equal to cos θ, and AB is equal to

AutoCAD can be used to make a trigonometric calculator that can be rather fun to construct and to use.
