This activity serves as a summary after a lesson on Right Triangle Trigonometry. In the seven centers, students will practice solving for missing values and missing angles.
1. Before beginning the lesson, I would recommend backing the centers on construction paper and laminating them so that they will withstand the use of multiple class periods. Depending on your students, your own preference, and general classroom management, you may either have the centers posted around the room and the students move to the centers, or you may have the students stay in their desks and rotate the centers among the groups.
2. Organize the students in small groups, preferably 3 to 4 students in each group. To maintain small groups, you may want to copy duplicate copies of the centers. This way, multiple groups can be working on the same center.
4. Students should record their answers on individual sheets of notebook paper. I would recommend collecting work from each student, rather than from the group as a whole.
5. Students may need 4-6 minutes per center. A kitchen timer is a great way to keep track of the time!
An answer key is included for easy grading!
