Trig Ratios and Inverse Trig Ratios: "doodle notes" -

When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:
- new learning
- relaxation (less math anxiety)
- visual connections
- better memory & retention of the content!

* This resource is also available as part of a DISCOUNTED bundle: Basic Trig Bundle

Students fill in the sheets, answer the questions, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.

Content includes:
- Sine, Cosine, and Tangent Ratios
- Inverse Trigonometric Ratios (sin ^ -1, cos ^ -1, and tan ^ -1)
- Applying the ratios to find missing angle measures and side lengths in right triangles
- Solving word problems with right triangles
- Practice and examples

Check out the preview for more detail about this item and the research behind it.

Visual note taking strategies like sketch notes or doodle notes are based on dual coding theory.  When we can blend the text input with graphic/visual input, the student brain processes the information differently and can more easily convert the new learning into long-term memory.

This strategy also integrates the left and right hemispheres of the brain to increase focus, learning, and retention!
