Transcript of Architecture and trigonometry

Of the six functions in basic trigonometry, the sine, cosine and tangent are the most important to architecture because they allow the architect to easily find the opposite and adjacent values related to an angle or hypotenuse. Employment and Salary Education Trigonometry Description The Product Whenever architecture involves the use of lines that are not on the x or y axis, it will involve trigonometry to calculate the length of lines and the angles they make from one another.
One example is calculating roof pitch. Trigonometry is especially important in architecture because it allows the architect to calculate distances and forces related to diagonal elements. Architecture Architecture is the process and product of planning, designing, and construction, usually of buildings and other physical structures.

Architects design buildings and other structures. In addition they also make sure they are functional, safe, economical and suit the needs of the people who use them. To become an architect you have three options to enter;

1. A 5-year Bachelor of Architecture program intended for students entering programs from high school or with no previous architectural training.

2. A 2-year Master of Architecture program for students with a pre-professional undergraduate degree in architecture or a related area.


3. A 3 or 4-year Master of Architecture program offered to students with degrees in other disciplines.

Any 3 will earn you a professional degree in architecture although generally, the professional degree in architecture must be from a school of architecture accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). and Trigonometry Resources There were approximately 113,700 architects employed in 2010, mostly in the architectural, engineering and related services industry. About a quarter were self employed. Most jobs were full-time positions. Many architects work over 50 hours a week and those hours include weekends and evenings. While they work in offices most of the time, they also have to visit construction sites to check up on the progress of the projects they have designed.
Architects earned median annual earnings of $73,340 and median hourly wages of $35.26 in 2011. Thank you for watching :') By: Gabrielle Melanson
