This scoop is an example how a single page can have multiple publications each with different levels of difficulty which in turn caters for students with different levels of ability.

Using a magnetic compass and triangulation to calculate the distance of a faraway object

Using a magnetic compass and triangulation to calculate the distance of a faraway object | Mathematics: Trigonometry | Scoop.it

In the wilderness, it is sometimes useful to be able to calculate the distance to a faraway object. Using a compass and basic trigonometry (don’t worry, we’ll show you how), you can easily estimate the distance to a faraway object. This is possible using principles of geometry and triangulation – if we know any three of the sides or angles of a triangle, we can calculate the remaining angles and sides. In the examples below, we’ll demonstrate two different methods to calculate the distance to an object. http://wildernessarena.com/environment/navigation/use-magnetic-compass-triangulation-to-calculate-distance-of-object

This is a really nice visualisation tool for trig functions that could be used for lots of activity at ots of levels!

This is a website that I wish I would have had when I was learning Trigonometry in high school!

Gettin' Triggy Wit It (WSHS Math Rap Song)

(Parody of Gettin' Jiggy Wit It by Will Smith) Westerville South High School, Westerville, Ohio

 

This song is about trigonometry and how to find angles or sides using the trig funtions.  The Weserville South High School math department has created a number of math song videos with the help of students in their school.  These videos are great because you could use them as an introduction to whatever topic you may be teaching during a unit. You could also have students create their own songs to help remember a concept.  I love the idea of using song to teach new concepts!

Here is an example of a scoop containing explanations and providing additional help for students studying standard trigonometry. This scoop can be appropriate to introduce students to the topic or for the a year 9 student without learning disabilities or gifts and talents.

Hi students, here is an interactive website that gives good explanations and examples on how to use the sin, cos and tan functions and rules. So if you need additional help or explanation I would strongly suggest looking over this website. Remember you will need to know this for your exam.
