Ive just started my first year of AQA A level physics and have been immediately introduced to the trigonometry and am finding it difficult to understand. My teacher is talking about unit circles and i understand nothing.
I got 80/80 UMS in both my GCSE physics exams (p2 and p3) and an A* in Maths but im worried about a levels.

My question is how hard does the trigonometry get?

Thanks

I wouldn't worry - there's essentially no trig in AS Physics IIRC. The only trig there is would be resolving forces which is just applied SOHCAHTOA.

Thanks, is there a lot more at A2?

I'm pretty sure there isn't more but I can't speak for all specifications.
