How to solve a simple looking problem with a twist, domain mapping

thumb_abstraction-and-domain-mapping-solves-simple-looking-problem-with-a-twist-top

In a problem that looks simple but somehow wrong and violates the commonly known concepts, power of abstraction may often overcome the apparently unknown and uncertain state and helps to reach the elegant solutions. On the way to the solution, usually a higher level rich concept is created the precise form of which was hidden just around the corner...

thumb_SSC CGL Tier 2 solution set 7 trigonometry1

This is the 7th solution set of 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL Tier II exam and 1st on topic Trigonometry. Students should complete the corresponding question exercise in prescribed time first and then only refer to this solution set. Some of these 10 questions may seem to be difficult at first glance...

How to solve School Math problem in a few steps and in Many Ways, Trigonometry 4

thumb_How to solve a school math problem in a few simple steps trigonometry4

The mechanical approach to math problem solving relies heavily on manipulation of terms using low level mathematical constructs without using the problem solving abilities of the student. In this problem we have highlighted the possibility to solve a problem in many ways and also the application of less facts and more procedures approach, both working towards improving the general problem solving skills of the student...

How to solve a School Math problem in a few simple steps, Trigonometry 3

thumb_How to solve a school math problem in a few simple steps trigonometry3

The conventional approach to math problem solving relies heavily on manipulation of terms using low level mathematical constructs without using the problem solving abilities of the student. Following only this approach to solving problems, students may tend to become used to mechanical and procedural thinking suppressing their inherent creative and innovative out-of-the-box thinking abilities...

Basic and rich Trigonometry concepts and its applications

thumb_trigonometry basic and rich concepts

Trigonometry first established relationships between the angle and side measurements of a right angled triangle by defining trigonometric functions and thus extended the reach of mathematics wonderfully. At first look we may not find much application of trigonometry in real world, but one must consider, the modern civilization is based on the sinusoidal frequencies that are nothing but trigonometric functions...
