This activity is designed Geometry, Algebra 2, or Trigonometry class. Please look at the thumbnails and the preview to make sure these problems are appropriate for your students.
The problems use sine, cosine, and tangent to solve for an unknown side. They are one process problems, i.e., you do not have to solve one triangle in order to find a part of another. Problems include degrees and minutes, angle of elevation, angle of depression, typical kite, balloon, ladder problems, and a few not so typical.
