Area of Triangles (using Trigonometry) Math Lib
Students will practice finding the area of a triangle using trigonometry with this "Math Lib" Activity. On some problems, students must use the Law of Sines or the Law of Cosines in order to find missing measures needed for the area formula. This activity is designed for an Algebra 2/Trig, Pre-Calculus, or Trigonometry course.
The answer at each station will give them a piece to a story (who, doing what, with who, where, when, etc.) This is a much more fun approach to multiple choice, and the students adore reading the story to the class. They get very excited to see which of their teachers is the "star" of the story.
ALL slides are given in an editable format so you are free to personalize the story for your students. PowerPoint is required to edit. Only story elements can be changed, not the actual problems.
This activity works very well in conjunction with my Algebra 2 Trigonometry Unit.
