              Trigonometry – Angles in Right-Angled Triangles

              Students learn how to apply Sin, Cos and Tan to find missing angles in right-angled triangles.  As learning progresses they are challenged to apply additional theorems associated to triangles to solve more complex problems.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use the Sine and Cosine function to calculate angles in right-angled triangles.
              • Most students should be able to use the Sine, Cosine and Tangent function to calculate angles in right angled triangles.
              • Some students should be able to calculate an angle in an isosceles triangle using Trigonometrical functions.

              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 […]
