I'm about to take a trig class and it's been a while since my last math class. I was wondering if you guys knew of any websites that have good trig study guides and study sheets? anything is appreciated! Thanks!

wikipedia is actually really good for looking up specific theorems and formulas. Look up trig identities and trig definitions on wiki. That being said, it probably won't be enough to "teach" you, but it will be a great reference. I know I found a few when I went back to school, but I don't remember them right now. If I find any I'll post them.

Cool! I really appreciate it! I knew that Wikipedia was good for that kind of stuff. I guess I'm looking mostly for a site that teaches you a formula or something and then gives you a few study questions (like a personal homework assignment). Something kind of like Khan Academy that focuses more in trig I guess is what I'm looking for.

I can understand your desire to find additional resources to supplement your trigonometry studies. While I cannot recommend specific websites, I can offer some general advice for studying trigonometry.

First, it is important to review the basic concepts and formulas of trigonometry, such as the Pythagorean theorem and the trigonometric ratios (sine, cosine, and tangent). These foundational concepts will serve as the building blocks for more complex problems.

Next, practice solving problems. Trigonometry is a subject that requires practice to fully understand and apply. Look for practice problems in your textbook or online and make sure to check your answers to ensure accuracy.

Additionally, visual aids can be helpful in understanding trigonometry. Look for videos or interactive tutorials that demonstrate the concepts and how they are applied in real-world situations.

Finally, don't be afraid to ask for help. Your teacher or classmates can be valuable resources for clarification and additional practice. Also, consider joining a study group to work through problems together and discuss any difficulties you may be having.

In summary, to excel in trigonometry, it is important to review the basics, practice solving problems, utilize visual aids, and seek help when needed. Good luck in your studies!
