    ok

    So, in other words, trigonometry is not differential in nature, right?

    If that's the case, then why is geometry and calculus differential?

    What makes a course of study differential or not?

    The word differencial is related to being able to do calculus. Thus, as I said, differencial geometry is a generalized calculus on some surface (or geometry).
