This is a task on the concept of Trigonometric Ratios, soh-cah-toa, and angles of elevation and angles of depression.
This is a 6 page team task. In this task students will take turns as "Student Teacher" and "Team Mathematician". Students will use color-coding and identify the parts of a right triangle on a diagram and determine the trigonometric ratios needed to solve the problem.
Students will solve complex trigonometry related diagrams, and changing the angle of perspective to solve.
Students will color-code and label diagrams to understand and apply the angles of elevation and angles of depression.
There are two angles of elevation and depression real world situation word problems. Students will use color-coding and determine the trigonometric ratio needed to solve the given problem.
Students will explain how they determined their reasoning in complete sentences.
* This task will have your classroom rich in mathematical discourse.
*** My "Team Tasks" are created to be completed in Teams of four. Each student is a team member: Team Member (A), Team Member (B), Team Member (C), and Team Member (D). Each team member is required to participate regularly throughout the "Team Task" as Team Mathematician. My cooperative learning "Team Tasks" require the students to be actively involved throughout the entire "Team Task". The Role of "Team Mathematician" alternates throughout the "Team Task". My "Team Tasks" are designed to elicit mathematical discourse within the teams.
Included are blackline masters and students samples with an answer key.
