              Trigonometry – Area of Triangles

              Students learn how to derive and apply the area formulae for non-right-angles.  As learning progresses they are challenged to apply additional formulae to calculate unknown dimensions.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the area of a non-right-angled if the value of two sides and the adjoining angle are known.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the area of a triangle using a combination of the Cosine and Area formulae.
              • Some students should be able to derive and solve equations using the Area of Triangle formula.

              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 […]
