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
(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.
