TIP THE SCALES in your favor with this collection of 4 interactive digital tipping point activities. Students will enjoy working these traditional problems in a more modern format.
This activity is designed for use in a high school geometry classroom. The concepts are addressed in more depth in Right Triangles & Trigonometry (Geometry - Unit 11).
Each slide contains a balance scale with at least two problems/diagrams on each side. The task is to solve for the variable using the 3 basic trigonometric ratios of sine, cosine, and tangent. Then, find the sum of the variables on each side, and determine whether the balance scale will tip up to the left or to the right.
I am and have been a high school Geometry teacher for 20+ years, and this activity has been used in my classroom with positive results.
