This PowerPoint includes 10 different real-life word problems in which students must use right triangle trigonometry to solve for missing values or angles. The PowerPoint is complete with custom animation so that pieces of the solving process are revealed, as well as the final answer.
I used this PowerPoint as a white board activity. Each student had their own mini white board, and I projected the PowerPoint onto the screen. Students had to draw the picture and solve. (The white boards were great for quickly correcting mistakes!)
*Note: I have used this PowerPoint in my Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and IB Math Studies classes.
