I use this PowerPoint to review before giving a test on California Trigonometry Standards 3.0, 12.0, and 19.0. There is a short video on the first slide. I have that playing as the students come into the classroom. My classes know that this mean to “get ready” by getting their “clickers”, getting out paper, calculators, and pencils. I eliminated all the clicker parts of this PowerPoint so it could be used in any classroom.
The slides are timed – the question will appear, and the students are to work out the problem on their paper. After what I thought was enough time, a sound of a wave will be heard, signifying that they should be done with the work. After the wave sound, each of the possible answers will appear. That’s when my students would enter their answer into their clickers, but you can have them raise hands, or ask specific students, or (like I used to do before I had clickers) have the whole class shout out an answer all at once. When you click the mouse, a starfish will appear on the correct answer. So, you only need to click the mouse to go to the next slide and to have the answer appear. Everything else is automatic. If you feel more, or less, time is needed, you can change it in the Custom Animations section.
There are five questions for Standard 3.0:
Students know and use the Pythagorean Identities.
Five questions for Standard 12.0:
Students use trigonometry to determine unknown sides or angles in right triangles.
Five questions for Standard 19.0:
Students are adept at using trigonometry in a variety of applications and word problems.
And, five question on review topics that I wanted them to master.
The slide templates were made by someone else, and were available as a free download on an Internet website.
Note: Math Type 5.0 was used to create some of the problems, and some of the answers.
