I use Scavenger Hunts to review a lot of different subjects in my classes. This one reviews finding the sides and angles of a right triangle using trigonometric ratios.
Although this is a Geometry Standard, I use this in my Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus classes as a review prior to teaching them how to solve oblique (non-right) triangles. I like them to remember how to solve a right triangle on their own. They like it, too! They would much rather have a Scavenger Hunt and a partner to work through the problems than to have me re-teach them something that they have already learned.
Students have fun with Scavenger Hunts. They try hard to find the correct answer so their team can finish first!
It includes instructions of how to use the Scavenger Hunt, and a worksheet that students can use to record their answer. I have also included a bonus homework worksheet with answer key that can be used after the Scavenger Hunt.

Common Core Standard:
G-SRT 8. Use trigonometric ratios and the Pythagorean Theorem to solve right triangles in applied problems.
Previous California Standards for Geometry:
15.0 Students use the Pythagorean theorem to determine distance and find missing lengths of sides of right triangles.
19.0 Students use trigonometric functions to solve for an unknown length of a side of a right triangle, given an angle and a length of a side.
