PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… a new set of Jedi Trainees have been brought under the tutelage of heroes of yesteryear. Although it is often unspoken, one of the secrets to mastering “the Force” is a concrete understanding of trigonometry. It turns out that the mental acuity required in a Jedi means that they must compute a variety of trigonometry problems that help them understand exact distances and precise angles.

Let Trigonometry and Star Wars collide in this adventure project!

In this 22 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, and handout resources for students to use.

-- In “Jedi Academy” students will use right triangle trigonometry to solve a variety of problems. An alternative version of this assignment is included afterward in case you prefer your students sketch their own pictures.

-- In “Use the Force”. Students will complete a variety of more challenging trigonometry problems that culminate in a face off against Darth Vader. This work can be done in teams or individually.
