Subject: Re: Geometry or Trig first?

Since trigonometry involves the study of triangles and depends heavily on an 
understanding of angles, it would be very difficult to study it without first 
completing a course in geometry.  Many of the special right triangle relationships 
which are introduced in geometry are pursued in greater detail in trigonometry.  
Geometry, therefore, should definitely be studied before trigonometry.
