    Did you think trigonometry was tough to learn in High School?

    Please briefly describe your take on it all. 
    (You can also include college experience if any.)

    No, it wasn't. It was one of my favorite subject.

    It wasn't hard for me either. While not always my favorite subject, math was always the subject I was best in.

    It wasn't hard to learn trigonometry. practice regularly and learn it easily.

    I love trigonometry:D There's something about solving the triangle, it's like your on a quest. LOL

    Unfortunately, Calculus is another matter. I don't know how I passed that subject...

    Trig was not one of the more fascinating math courses I've taken, but it was not especially difficult either. Because I'm mildly dyslexic, it was hard for me to remember the half-angle formulas, because two of them are very similar. However I could always derive them quickly when the need arose.

    Trig identity problems were mainly hard work. I was never sure what to do first. I just reached into the 'trig toolbox', and grabbed something that could legitimately apply. If that led up a blind alley, I'd start over.

    Trig identity problems can be a bugbear for some people, who feel obligated to imitate the teacher, rather than doing the hard thinking for themselves. Here's a little-known secret: the teacher muddles his way through trig identity problems too!

    The hard truth: You're mostly on your own. However you'll become more proficient and faster with lots of practice. And that means keeping current on your homework!

    To be honest, I am not a mathematical person (anything more complicated than simple arithmatic, forget it!) so Trigonometry at first was horrible for me. I constantly muddled the three operations Tangent, Sine and Cosine, and I'd often get myself so confused. Eventually I got help from a friend, as well as a teacher, and I improved at Trigonometry.
    But it definitely is a hard subject, but once you figure out a way for YOU to understand it, you're set.

    No, trigonometry was not at all tough to learn in High School. Only some basic formulas were taught to solve problems. It was really interesting and the teacher was capable of making the students learn it easily.

    In junior college, my main subject was Maths. We had to learn trigonometry on a large scale with lots of easy and difficult problems to solve. If you've a clear idea of the basics and a little tactics about where to use the formulas appropriately, you'll find it to be funny and interesting. Of course, some problems may deviate you from reaching the solution, but all are not like that.
