Trigonometry Introduction


Students discover the three trigonometric ratios Sin, Cos and Tan through constructions.

Later, as learning progresses, they are challenged to apply the three ratios to solve problems involving right-angled triangles.

Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to identify the three trigonometric ratios of a right-angled triangle.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the Opposite and Adjacent side using Sin θor Cos θ
  • Some students should be able to solve real-life problems involving the lengths of any side of a right-angled triangle using SOH CAH TOA
