Help your students practice using Trig Ratios to solve for missing sides and angles on right triangles. This activity will have students up and moving as they actively "work the room" to discuss and answer questions. These cards have students using sine, cosine, tangent, and the inverse functions on their calculators to solve for missing sides and angels.
Simply print the slides on brightly colored paper and hang them around the room. Give students a copy of the student response page, and allow them time to get up, get talking, and get working on these straight-forward problems. By the time students are done with each station, they will be more confident about solving these problems and justifying their reasoning.
Great alternative to "another worksheet". Students love to get up and move as they learn. Great as a common core activity and great for cooperative learning. Also really great as a review before the test or as task cards for learning centers or tutoring. This allows you to notice which students are struggling and it gives you the chance to help them in a more relaxed, conversational approach. And it allows you to "trouble shoot" as students need help setting up the problems or entering the information in their calculators. Students are motivated to finish all the problems on time because they know they can't take them home.
Students can start working at any card and work their way around the room. This activity is not a scavenger hunt, just a motivating way to get students up and moving, solving, and discussing math.
