This activity includes 11 problems. Each solving for a side or angle within a right triangle. To solve all students will need a basic understanding of trigonometric functions, inverse trigonometric functions, and how to evaluate them using the calculator. This activity only uses angles in degrees, and does include the angle of elevation and depression. Answer Key is attached. All grades working with trigonometric functions (including my senior classes) love this activity!
Students will start at any problem they desire. They will solve that problem and the answer to that problem will be somewhere around the room. If they answer the question correctly, then it will lead them to the next question. If done properly, the students will complete all 11 problems and then end up back to the question they started at. Once done, you could (optional) see if they can use the letters to answer the riddle.
