Using the unit circle for Inverse Trig Functions

Using the unit circle for Inverse Trig Functions

Author: Abel Maestas

Students will be able to use the unit circle to solve a variety of problems that involve inverse trigonometric functions and special angles in the unit circle.

There are about 9 problems that are covered in this video.  This is the second part of a two-part video series on Inverse Trig Functions.  The first video consisted of the graphs and how to determine the range restrictions for each of the six inverse trig functions.
