I want a timeline for trigonometric function and how it was developed. Just like who created it and stuff like that. Did the greeks know about trigonometric functions? Is a tangent in calculus the same as a tangent in trigonometry and the function os a trigonometry? How do trigonometric functions apply to right angle triangles?
 
Nice read!
