These graphic organizers show the relationship between an acute angle and the sides adjacent and opposite the angles.I MADE YOU TWO DIFFERENT COLOR PATTERNS...
These graphic organizers have really helped my students. I make them circle the angle for every problem they do. When they get to word problems, you can begin to see the results. It may seem simple to us, the math teachers, to locate these sides but some students find that to be the most confusing part of solving basic trig problems.
I will be posting some problems where the students must a)find the missing side and b) find the missing angle.(with the keys)
I also have a graphic organizer for those problems that I will be posting.
You can blow these up and put them on your word wall or print them small (2 to 1 or 4 to 1) on your printer and have students paste them in their notebooks.
