**Scheme of work: GCSE Higher: Year 10: Term 3: Trigonometry in Right-Angled Triangles**

- Express a multiplicative relationship between two quantities
- Understand and use proportion as equality of ratios
- Know the formulae for: Pythagoras theorem, a
^{2}+ b^{2}= c^{2} - Apply angle facts, triangle congruence, similarity and properties of quadrilaterals to conjecture and derive results about angles and sides, including Pythagorasâ€™ Theorem and the fact that the
- Base angles of an isosceles triangle are equal, and use known results to obtain simple proofs

- Know the trigonometric ratios, Sin x = Opp/Hyp, Cos x = Adj/Hyp, Tan x = Opp/Adj
- Apply them to find angles and lengths in right-angled triangles and, where possible, general triangles in two and three dimensional figures
- Know the exact values of sin and cos for = 0°, 30°, 45°, 0°, and 90°.; know the exact value of Tan for 0°, 30°, 45° and 60°.

- Sin, Cos and Tan are trigonometric functions that are used to find lengths and angles in right-angled triangles.
- The hypotenuse is opposite the right angle; the opposite refers to the side that is opposite the angle in question, and the adjacent side runs adjacent to the angle.
- The inverse operations of sin, cos and tan are pronounced arcos, arcsin and arctan.
- Students need to be confident using diagram notation to draw 2D diagrams from problems in 3D.

- Students often have difficulty knowing which trigonometric ratio to apply. Encourage them to label the sides to identify the correct ratio clearly.
- Use SOHCAHTOA as a memory aid as students often forget the trigonometric ratios.
- When using trigonometric ratios to calculate angles students often forget to use the inverse functions.
- Students often try to apply right-angled formulae to non-right-angled triangles.
