Extending the Domain of Sine and Cosine to All Real Numbers
Round and round we go! Pupils use reference angles to evaluate common sine and cosine values of angles greater than 360 degrees. Once they have mastered the reference angle, learners repeat the process with negative angles.

The unit circle definition of trigonometric function
In this video, Sal shows how the sine and cosine of an angle are defined on the unit circle. He inscribes a 30-60-90 triangle in the unit circle and explains how one can use SOH-CAH-TOA to find the coordinates on the circle.
