3D Trigonometry

              3D Trigonometry

              Students learn how to calculate an angle and length in a 3D shape using trigonometry.

              Later, as learning progresses they consider square based pyramids in addition to cubes and cuboids.

              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate a length in a 3D shape using 2D representations of right angled triangles
              • Most students should be able to calculate an angle in a 3D shape using 2D representations of right angled triangles.
              • Some students should be able to calculate a combination of length and angle in a 3D shape using 2D representations of right angled triangles
