agree  mimichan: That sure is something I saw in the dictionary too. I wonder if he needs the answer 三角関数 as well, because depending on the state, district etc, trigonometry classes or textbooks might also have trigonometric function.

Explanation:
"Trigonometry" is often translated "sankaku-hou."
However, if you are talking about an academic subject or a title of a textbook, "sankaku-kansu" may be more appropriate.
"Sankaku" means "triangle;" and "kansu" means "function."

Explanation:
I gave the answer in roman letters to let you know how to read pronounce trigonometry in Japanese. It is 三角法if written in Japanese.

Trigonometric function is 三角関数、which is read as "sankaku kansuu"

I am not sure how the word trigonometry appeared but trigonometry is translated as 三角法 and trigonometric function is translated as 三角関数　in the dictionary. Do trigonometry textbooks or classes also have trigonometric function in your country, state or district? I gave two answers and asked this question so that you might be able to choose what would be closer to what you are looking for.
