The main kinds are plane trigonometry and solid trigonometry. The latter will include trigonometry in hyper-spaces.

Trigonometry is the study of plane and spherical triangles. Plane trigonometry deals with 2 Dimensional triangles like the ones you would draw on a piece of paper. But, spherical trigonometry deals with circles and 3 Dimensional triangles. Plane trigonometry uses different numbers and equations than spherical trigonometry. There's plane trigonometry, where you work with triangles on a flat surface, then there's spherical trigonometry, where you work with triangles on a sphere.

The two branches of trigonometry are plane trigonometry, which deals with figures lying wholly in a single plane, and spherical trigonometry, which deals with triangles that are sections of the surface of a sphere.

Generally pre-calculus is taken after trigonometry, unless the trigonometry course was supplemented by a pre-calculus course, in which case the next course would be calculus.

Optics deals with light waves, and all waves relate in some way to trigonometry. Also, the reflection and refraction of light involves trigonometry.

Not specifically trigonometry, but functions in general. As a general rule, functions must be evaluated before using the results in other parts of the calcuation.

TRIGONOMETRY

Trigonometry is applied in construction and building, as trigonometry measures right angled triangles.

Plane trigonometry is trigonometry carried out in (on) a plane. This could be contrasted with spherical trigonometry, which is trigonometry carried out on the surface of a sphere. Certainly there are some other more complex forms of trig.
