120 Notes Section 1.2 Angle Relationships and Similar Triangles
1. Angles formed by intersecting lines.
Vertical Angles are Congruent (Equal)
Linear Pairs form Supplementary Angles
2. Angles formed when two parallel lines are cut by a transversal.
142 Notes Section 2.5 Applications of Right Triangles
There are two types of bearing.
Bearing given as a single degree measure
1. Make a starting point.

120 Notes Section 3.2 Applications of Radian Measure
1. Arc Length
Recall arc length from Geometry,
=arc length , =circumference,
If we substitute =
2 and convert to radian measure,
Ex) Find in degrees-minutes
120 Notes Section 2.4 Solving Right Triangles
1. Significant Digits.
When rounding, an answer can be no more accurate than the LEAST
ACCURATE number used in the calculation
Ex) Solve for .
2. Accuracy of measurements
120 Notes Section 2.2 Trig Functions of Non-Acute Angles
1. Reference Angle the acute angle formed between the terminal
side of and the nearest x axis.
Ex) Find the reference angle for = 207
Ex) Find the reference angle for = 280
120 Notes Section 3.1 Radian Measure
1. Definition of Radian We say = 1 radian when it intercepts an arc length, S,
equal in length to the radius of the circle.
When = = 1
When = 2 =
When = 2 =
