### Description

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

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!
