# Exact Trigonometric Solutions

Students learn how to solve trigonometrical equations with exact solutions using special triangles.   As learning progresses they use the properties of trigonometric graphs to find additional solutions beyond 90°.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to calculate the exact values of Sin and Cos 30°, 45°, 60° and 90°.
• Most students should be able to solve trigonometric equations such as 2Cos45°.
• Some students should be able to use trigonometric graphs to find alternative solutions to Sin, Cos and Tan 30°, 45°, 60° and 90°

#### Preparing Students for a Mathematics Exam

Preparing students for a mathematics exam takes time, patience and careful planning.  In this blog I will share my ideas for teaching students how to prepare for their final exams.  These are strategies that have worked well for me and I have see work well for others.  Creative writing to formulate ideas Students need space […]

#### Area of Compound Shapes

To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
